Rob Pruitt

Artist, crafter, and cultural anthropologist - Rob Pruitt navigates the depths and the shallows of the contemporary visual world. His varied projects include painted glittery canvases of panda bears, an eBay Flea Market benefiting various charities, creating the art world's own Hollywood-style awards ceremony, and for the better half of a decade, Instagramming a daily calendar of personal and public events. Pruitt has won many admirers for his use of diverse media and D.I.Y. techniques, which bring an outsider spirit to works that always deliver a message. Over the last 30 years, Pruitt’s influential practice has been met with both critical and popular success.


His work has been shown internationally since the early 1990’s, at venues including the Tate Modern, Kunstahlle Zürich, MoCA Detroit, and the Aspen Art Museum. In 2011, the Public Art Fund installed Pruitt’s Andy Monument, a chrome-plated, seven-foot-tall statue of Andy Warhol, near Union Square.
