Your Monday Mixx – Enjoy!!
Los Angeles based painter, illustrator, and comic book artist Rob Sato has a new exhibition at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, California. “The Open End” showcases nearly a year’s worth of Sato’s otherworldly lies and intricate plotting with sumptuous detail. The Open End is the place where no path or plan leads but where you end up anyway. It’s the door to the next moment, the next room, the next dimension, the inevitable future and center of the whirlpool.”
Born in Sacramento, California, Rob Sato is a painter, illustrator and comic book artist. Sato has a B.F.A. California College of Arts & Crafts and currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
“The driving force behind his work is the compulsive desire to see a joke fleshed out. In setting out to make a painting, he begins with a cartoon, a story if you will, to build a world for a joke to live in. As the piece develops in layers of imagery with settings – both mundane and fantastic – a tiny little world emerges full of side stories, tweaked symbols, disguises, traps, tricks and the occasional red, white or blue herring. All bits fight harmoniously under a smokescreen of meticulous line work and magnetic watercolor. In his successes we are faced with a lifetime of undying visual investigation, never ending stories and constant brain food.” (from GalleryRevisited.com)
