Obodje is completely guided by these messengers; he produced his last series with a more personal expression, even more so in the so-called art brut in the words of Jean Dubuffet: “the authors draw everything (…) from their own background and not from the clichés of the classic art or fashionable art. We are witnessing the pure, raw artistic operation from only its own impulses “.
