The famous Watts Towers (above) are possibly the best-known example of what has become known as Outsider Art, a genre perhaps best described as that created by untrained artists, it’s also known as Folk Art.

Here is what Wikipedia says

And here are some outsider artists photographed with their works by Ted Degener

I used to own a book called Weird U.S. that covered a lot of this stuff in one of its chapters. It was all American, of course.

Of special note, I recall reading about the Latvian immigrant who built the Coral Castle in Florida.

There are numerous videos of Coral Castle online, this one features Leonard Nimoy
