Rob Croxford

My vintage-style work is very identifiable! It is quite playful, mostly clever, slightly twisted, and often has a "pocket-sized" political edge. As a professional artist /entertainer /activist/smarty-pants, I am always looking for new ways to challenge and amuse! I have been painting full-time for nearly a decade. I have honed my artist voice over the course of 500 pieces and 60 (or so) group/solo/outdoor exhibitions. My acrylic paintings often juxtapose my original retro-styled imagery with urban and rural landscapes. I use this sense of 'nostalgia' as well as humour & word play to address environmental and sociopolitical issues! By integrating comedic devises I am able to convey my ideas in a highly accessible way. It is my intention to entertain but also to challenge people to re-examine their opinions about our values, our traditions and our communities.
