Chris RWK (Robots
Will Kill) has been on the scene since the late 80s/early 90s,
(before street art was "street art," but that's a whole
different conversation). By age 11, Chris was already introduced to
graff, intrigued by what his older brother and his buddies were
getting into. He had already been into art at that time, drawing his
own versions of his favorite comic books and cartoons. References to
the music, music videos, album covers, television shows and other
facets of 1970s, 80s and 90s popular culture appear throughout
ChrisRWK's artwork both on the streets and in his "indoor"
paintings. His visual language is layered and draws from the
multi-genre fascinations of his childhood and adolescence. ChrisRWK
invites the viewer to familiarize themselves with his characters and
the iconographic imagery he uses and to create their own relationship
with them. He hopes his audience feels at home with his pieces and
evoke their own memories and stories. His recognizable robot
character has been around for more than two decades. He launched
RobotsWillKill.com in 2001 as an online hub to feature artists who
were often ignored by the mainstream art world. The site evolved into
an international landing space for "outsider" and
"street" artists to share their work and learn about
artists from around the globe. Many relationships and collaborations
grew from this meeting space and the site remains a quintessential
touchstone for graffiti and street art documentation to this day.
We hope to
see you at the Jersey City Armory for the fair and at the gallery for
the screening! Message us at our email: email@example.com with any questions or for a catalog
