Canadian artist Robbie Gallows is a painter using Street Art and Expressionism to transform life experiences into visual poetry. He explores the unlimited potentiality of color and atmospheric visual planes and volume within a two-dimensional framework. Viewing his dynamic work is an exciting experience of counter-culture within the streets. Robbie graduated from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and is working as a professional artist.
Robbie Gallows longs for the old days of dingy smoke-filled clubs and punk rock. He looks around back alleys to seek the color of the shadows from the past and the different greens of a brilliant new generation. When he gets ready to paint, he just closes his eyes and imagines a scene. He’ll get an inspiration and start painting; then, he’ll forget everything, everything except how things used to be and how to paint it so people will know how we used to live. Punk’s not dead, it’s evolved.
