A peek into the creativity of Jaber al Mahjoub, a street artist, originally from Tunisia and now living in Paris, France. Encouraged at an early age by the French artist Jean Dubuffet, Jaber calls himself the “Happy Idiot,” obsessively making paintings, sculptures and songs that express the immediacy of life and experience. Jaber himself is Art Brut.
