Chris RWK is an American artist who was born and raised in New York City. Much of his work is grounded in the ideas and imagery he was exposed to as a child in the 70s and 80s, including through television, comic books, films and music. And of course, robots.
His colorful, engaging paintings frequently reference popular culture and reveal everyday musings to his audience, which often invoke feelings of comfort and familiarity.
In 2001, Chris RWK set up, Robots Will Kill, an online platform, dedicated to community and exposure for artists often disregarded by the mainstream art world.
