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 on grounds of the Columbus Airport, signifying the growth of an emerging city.
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.
