  • Charlie Roberts (b. 1983), Kensas, USA

    Roberts lives and works in Oslo. Roberts is a polymath, a cultural magpie. His various endeavours cross-pollinate, building myths amongst themselves. Roberts' works borrow from art-historical and pop cultural sources alike. 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. Roberts is educated at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Vancover, Canada and Kansas University, USA. His latest exhibitions includes: New "Bad" Painting, V1 Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark in 2018, and in 2017: No Ceilings, Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm, Sweden, Windows, David Risley Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark, Laffy Taffy, Galleri Golsa, Oslo, Norway and Fan Art, Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles, USA.
