Robert Hardgrave has inhabited the city of Seattle for the past 15 years. He adores coffee, delicious breakfasts, and listening to metal. Most days you can find Robert painting at his studio in Ballard, adorned with headphones, jacked up on caffeine.
As a self-developed artist, Robert creates work both highly intricate and abundant with personal symbols. Inspired by experiences from disease and recovery, his paintings and drawings reflect ideas of reincarnation and the richness of life beyond death.
Robert is represented by BLK/MRKT Gallery in Culver City, CA. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, had work featured in books and magazines, and regularly does work for skateboard and snowboard companies. You can find more information about robert at farmerbobsfarm.com
