Avery, Eric Holmes, Adriam Horta, Jorge Alberto Hernández Cadi (El Buzo), Patrick La Fon, Milton Schwartz, Ramón Losa, Julián Espinosa Rebollido (Wayacon), Roger Sadler, Damián Valdés Dilla, Guillermo Marcos Cazola (Rigo) and Héctor Gallo Portieles (Gallo).
Naemi is dedicated to discovering, studying, promoting, exhibiting, and preserving the art of people recovering from mental illness throughout the world.
The “art of the mentally ill” as defined for the purposes of Naemi, refers to the art produced by individuals, usually self-taught and without any formal artistic training, whose work arises from an intense, innate personal vision. Through public exhibitions Naemi seeks to educate the public about this art and to aid in overcoming and dispelling any negative bias associated with the circumstances of its production and to affirm the positive power and importance of the creativity of individuals recovering from mental illnesses.
