Re-Imagining Faces, Part V: Lionel Paul, Mr. Imagination, Elana Gil, Basquiat, Yarin Didi and Noty & Aroz

The wonderfully inventive face pictured above was forged by Haitian artist Lionel Paul aka Onel with recycled textile art, sawdust, found objects and glue. Several more faces fashioned largely by Outsider artists — or by those who have embraced an Outsider sensibility — follow:

Chicago native Gregory Warmack aka Mr. Imagination, as seen earlier at Chicago’s Intuit

Israeli artist Elana Gil, as seen at Ein Hod Central Gallery in the Ein Hod Artists’ Village in the Haifa District

The legendary native Brooklynite Basquiat, as seen at Manhattan’s Museum of Modern Art

Tel Aviv-based Yarin Didi on the streets of his city

Parisian artists Noty and Aroz, as seen on the streets of Lisbon, Portugal
