Michel Nedjar a French outsider artist who's work I discovered in a book that I bought last weekend in Berlin.
Michel Nedjar was born just outside Paris in 1947 most of his maternal family had died in concentration camps during the war. Michel's father was a master Tailor and so Michel grew up surrounded by fabrics and machines. His first dolls were made of offcuts of material and sticks. Michel trained as a tailor also but after military service he travelled extensively. He has always made these dolls, totems of humanity, but he also draws and paints and makes films.
