This artist lives with an intimacy market by a unique look and a very original pictorial form that comes from inside him. It originates from the way he deals with the issue of balance that exists in his work, between the atmosphere, the environment and the air that surrounds his creative abilities. It stems from personal references that disperse themselves inside his work. It assumes an aggressive coexistence that leads us towards and artistic uneasiness or mystery.
Van Robert’s unique style dominated by little drawings, and interesting spaces grab our attention. His talent for blending colors comes from an impressive impulsivity and spontaneity.
