CR- Modern Pop Golf Artist
Mixed media artist, CR, Christopher Robin, through his own vision of Forgotten Beauty: Found, continues the legacy and tradition of modern Pop Artists in his series POP ART GOLF.
Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, in the 1970s, CR experienced the original genius of Roy Lichtenstien’s “Brushstrokes in Flight.” An advocate for public art, CR successfully lobbied for its installation at the Columbus Airport, signifying the growth of an emerging city.
In New York, CR’s art exponentially grew. Emerging simultaneously with his fellow friend and artist, Peter Tunney, founder of Wynwood, CR fully engaged the New York art scene as it continued to be driving force in the growth of contemporary art in America.
Privately curated by Pratt Institute PHD Art Professor Scholar, Ernesto Pujol, CR’s work grew in scale and materials, transforming his works into mixed media assemblage. Exhibited at Neuberger Museum, Greenwich CT, Art Basel Miami & Switzerland to numerous international art fairs and exhibitions, CR’s works took on a global following.
Years later, CR would come to know and collaborate with Vito Giallo; Pop Art Icon and Founder, Andy Warhol’s first studio assistant and best friend. The two artists collaborated in their Brooklyn studios and townhouse. Based on CR’s mixed media assemblage vision, combining their talents, they created series of large-scale collages celebrating the found object.
