Join us at Martin Lawrence Galleries, Schaumburg and discover the latest whimsical creations by contemporary artist Robert Deyber. Don’t miss this special exhibition featuring original paintings and hand-signed, limited edition lithographs.
Deyber is a ‘visual raconteur’—a storyteller with a paintbrush, his mind’s eye planted deep within the subconscious. With artistic roots that hail from the Surrealist movement, among his heroes are Rene Magritte and Salvatore Dali. While many of Deyber’s paintings contain elements derived from dreams created out of the unpredictable imagery found in the subconscious, the extraterrestrial flowers have more in common with the worlds of alternate natural history imagined by Alexis Rockman or Walton Ford, and the visual rendition of current phraseology and popular culture are more in the tradition of the Pop Art movement. It is, in the end, the undecided tone between sincerity and irony that makes Robert Deyber’s artwork distinctly contemporary, his visual vocabulary distinctly his own, but with a worldwide audience.
Robert's work has been lauded for it's humorous tone and wit. His work has been collected internatioanlly by the likes of: King Abdullah II of Jordan, Aaron Paul, The U.S. Embassy in Sweden, and Josh Brolin.
