New Works in Steel and Polymer by Rick Robinson
October 24th – December 1st, 2013
Artists Reception Thurs Oct 24th 7-10pm
Rick Robinson is a Downtown LA based artist. His Primitive Pop steel sculptures and prints mix the raw iconography of Native American Petroglyphs with pop materials inspired by the California Cool School – think steel, gloss, polymer, metallic & fluorescent paints. Originally from the small agricultural town of Lodi, CA, his Central Valley work ethic pushed him through junior college (where he worked swing shift in a steel mill) to SF State University where he studied art and advertising. Rick has shown his work all over the world – LA, SF, New York, Belgium and Germany. Rick blends his art career with his day job as Managing Director/West Coast for MacDonald Media (a NY-based Media Agency) and volunteer work as Board President for Art Share LA. He blows off steam racing stock cars with his 75 year old father.
