Robin Rhode, not a sellout but severely legit

brutalest on Jun 7th 2010

The South African Robin Rhode is an artist who works mainly in urban street culture related art. His career started quite literally on the street, using the concrete on the ground of Cape Town as his canvas, making his art with mainly chalk, paint and charcoal. To make these local artifacts available for the rest of us, he photographs his work, sometimes to make comic-like frames


and digital animations


He is an artist with vision that makes beautiful things out of ugly things, and it is the kind of art that every common passerby can appreciate. The enterprising BMW executives clearly saw this and he got paid to be creative. Not a sellout!
