Artist Discovery - Charlie Roberts

https://www.instagram.com/charlierobertsstudio/
From Woaw and Ojiri Galleries -
Currently situated in Norway, American artist Charlie Roberts, receives his creative inspiration from traditional art, pop culture, hiphop, comics, folk art, and artists such as Matisse, Ensor, Florine Stettheimer, etc. He explores across different medias, blurring the boundaries of forms, breaking established models for art and creation. Roberts has involved himself in wood sculpting, ceramic production and oil painting. His desire to create with new materials, styles and techniques fills his work with energy and unique expressions.
Roberts elongates his figures, making them slimmer and giving them seemingly impossibly long limbs; featuring a cast of humans, animals, and hybrid creatures enacting bizarre, surreal scenarios. One might discover a universe of childhood fantasies referring to Greek myths, fables, ancient narratives and folklore. His works are rendered in different shades of blue and washed-out residual colors, creating a mysterious and ethereal atmosphere.

Love this work - feels familiar yet fresh, a nice balance of trad surrealism and contemporary ref points. Not seen in the flesh yet, but would like to!! Anyone got anything by Charlie? Would love to see some pics!
