Lot description
Executed in orange, yellow, black, and silver acrylic paint, this vibrant portrait of a man with arms crossed is representative of pioneering artist Bobby G's early period in the downtown New York art scene of the 1980s.

East Village artist Bobby G (born Robert Goldman in 1948) came to prominence in the late 1970s as a member of the Colab art collective, which included artists such as Tom Otterness, Walter Robinson, and Kiki Smith. In their highly collaborative group shows, the Colab artists combined a variety of media, including graffiti art. The energy, openness, and group identity of the Colab experience fed directly into Bobby G's co-founding of ABC No Rio, a center for art and activism in downtown New York. Bobby G has been the recipient of fellowships and grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Adolf and Esther Gottlieb Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. His work has been exhibited at galleries and institutions including the Semaphore Gallery, New York, NY; Haunch of Venison, New York, NY; the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA; the Austin Museum of Art; and MoMA P.S. 1.
