The Art of Brian Robertson

We recently came across the work of Los Angeles based artist Brian Robertson, who's combinations of oil, acrylic and collage seem to perfectly capture a unique voice where geometric shapes and hyper-rendered faces meet on a natural palate of earth tones and a seemingly aboriginal aesthetic. The collage element to the work is what captivates us most, the bright angular shapes being composed of hand cut pieces of colored paper all resting together underneath oil paints and layers of resin. Robertson's work is now on view at Illiterate Gallery in Denver, get a look at some of our favorite works from the show after the jump.
