A self-described Conceptual Realist, Los Angeles artist Robert Williams is credited as patriarch of some of the most significant and influential contemporary art movements. His proleptic career expands six decades, and he became known as revolutionary for embracing marginalized styles and underground cultures, like alternative comics, hot rods, pinups, graffiti and tattoo art. Williams is unabashed in his social commentary, and his paintings are rich in color, content and technique.
