Iconic Photo Mosaic Storyteller
Robin Austin has always been a storyteller – whether earlier in his career, marketing successful global companies, or as the co-founder and creative visionary of Fusion 5, a global branding firm, or now as an artist – creating a rich landscape reflecting images of our shared cultural heritage.
Each signed and limited edition work is a visual celebration of the moments captured in time. The genius of Robin’s art work – is in the exhaustive research that goes into each photo canvas – deftly and artistically composed, which is then “baked” on to aluminum through the process of dye-sublimation. The result – a retelling, a chronicling of the spirit of pop culture. With thousands of images – none alike – you never look at the same image in the same way twice. Each viewing reveals a facet of the story anew. It’s all there: movies, music, fashion, sex, sports, politics, current events – the iconic stuff that shapes our lives.
“Robin is a force of nature, an aesthetic alchemist, who converts cultural emotionality into his signature portraits, igniting smiles and attracting fans worldwide”, says Gene Seidman his New York art dealer.
