Karel Appel & CoBrA

Appel was a member of CoBrA, an art collaborative whose work was inspired by the drawings of children. The artists often addressed social and political concerns which I found interesting as adults don’t usually take kids drawings so seriously yet the artists are addressing very serious issues. Karel Appel’s work appealed to me the most due to the use of bright colours and shapes.
