Painter, animator, and muralist Robert Proch has passed away at the age of 33. The Polish artist was known for a dynamic blend of the figurative, architectural elements, shifting perspectives, and an innovative, kinetic energy coursing through his works. Collaborators KIRK Gallery and Thinkspace Projects both confirmed his passing after a message was posted on his Instagram account Thursday evening.
An excerpt from Thinkspace’s statement on Instagram: “Rest easier now my friend. Our hearts go out to your children and family. You were one of the most humble and talented people I’ve ever met. I wish you realized how many people the world over loved you. We will miss you.”
