Charlie Roberts

United States Born in: 1983 Famous artist
Charlie Roberts was born in 1983 in Hutchinson, Kansas. He studied History at the University of Kansas but switched to painting and enrolled to the Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design in Vancouver, British Columbia. Roberts lives and works in Asker, Norway.

Roberts is a polymath, a cultural magpie. His various endeavours cross-pollinate, building myths amongst themselves. Born in the USA, educated in Canada and living in Norway, Roberts works borrow from art-historical and pop cultural sources.

His cramped paintings display the perspectival complexity of ancient Egyptian and Byzantine painting. The contents are stacked one above the other, showing different views simultaneously. They bring to mind Hockney's early paintings and photo collages. Cubism and comic books. The subject matter, utterly contemporary, banal and everyday is at odds with the delicacy of the medium they are made in.

Watercolour on paper, over a painted pink ground which unifies the overall image and brings harmonious tonal order to the chaotic scenarios. His wide-ranging practice also encompasses sculptures roughly carved from chunks of local trees and painted, sitting somewhere between tribal objects, folk art and pop-cultural figures.
