"Joseph Crépin, a French plumber from the port of Calais, started painting in his sixties, following an increased awareness of his spiritual powers. Encouraged by fellow mediumistic artist Lesage, and influenced by the supernatural forces which Crépin said guided his every move, he began to fill exercise books with spontaneous motifs. He later meticulously copied the designs on to large pieces of paper, using coloured pencils and then oils, carefully numbering each of his works." (Excerpt from the book 'Raw Vision. Outsider Art Sourcebook', 2002)
