Robi Walters Gives Art Career Advice
About the Artist:
Robi Walters’s exuberant collages and paintings are filled with vibrant bursts of color. To create his mixed-media pieces, the London-born artist uses unusual materials, such as the packaging from household items and broken vinyl LPs. These materials are nods to both pop art and the arte povera movement, as well as to the artist’s youthful interest in the graffiti and break dance culture of New York’s hip-hop scene. Walters arranges these fragments into lotus-like forms that relate to his interest in meditation, an act he practices every morning as a counterpoint to his routine of ending each day with a diaristic painting.
British, b. 1973, London, United Kingdom, based in London, United Kingdom
