JM Robert, France
The Hong Kong art gallery “Art Supermarket” is honoured to showcase Urban Asian by emerging Street Art artist JM Robert. The French artist is a globetrotter between two worlds, which are worlds apart. Coming from the old continent to Asia, JM Robert tries to come closer to this new Asian world. On his second journey he portrays Asian women, focusing on their faces, to show their deep emotions and their feelings of being confronted with an extremely diverse, fast-paced and vibrant mega-city-life such as Hong Kong offers. JM Robert carefully interprets such faces and transforms them in a powerful art force. Urban Asian is an intimate survey of human sensitivities by JM Robert.
As growing artist, JM Robert is part of the top 10 artists to absolutely follow on artsper.com and one of his painting was projected on the Arc de Triomphe (Paris) during the celebration of 2016 new year.
The damaged walls of buildings fascinate JM Robert. He always feels the thrill in front of deteriorated and degraded walls, this is his source of inspiration. On one hand he tries to develop his own aesthetic design of ruins, on the other hand his paintings want to speak a contemporary language that reflects the history and story of our cities.
