Robbie's Jive Bio I grew up as an "art brat" in New York City. My friends and I got kicked out of every major museum and every public library in town. I got psychedelicized at San Francisco State University in the '60's and professionalized at Stanford University in the '70's. In the '80's, encroaching adulthood forced me to integrate my personality--get my art and social concerns together--and finally make pictures about subjects that were important to me: politics, power, and the abuses of both. I quickly realized that art institutions are a severely limited arena of reception for ideas about public issues, so I made posters of my paintings and ran around the streets, spattering glue in every major city I could get to on my no budget, non-skeddo, total loss, rock'n'roll poster tours...building up a volunteer guerrilla postering army as I went. If I can make a surprise one-liner for people on their way to work in the morning--provide them with a little "infotainment"-- and get them to think along with me about issues I think are important, I'm happy. I live in Los Angeles, CA. We make and print the posters here, get them up on the streets, then take them on tour around the country."
