A dreamy child with poor health who was apprenticed at the age of 13. He had several jobs including being a cobbler. He met Otto Freundlich and Jeanne Kossnik-Kloss whilst visiting Paris in 1936 and they revealed his artistic destiny to him. The following year, the couple organised his first exhibition. The painter Jean Dubuffet, who invented the raw art concept in 1946, was Chaissac’s main source of encouragement because he saw in him the archetype of the raw artist. From 1948, the painter isolated himself in Vendée with his wife where he created and corresponded greatly. This was a very prolific period and he produced numerous painted objects (recycled items most of the time), coloured totems on wood and also collages of wallpaper.
