Robert Falco (b. 1992 lives and works in Oakland, CA) received his BFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2015. Falco’s work ranges from oil on canvas to mixed media on stretched vinyl. Creating a body of work that through its conversation between reality and fiction, ghoulish and sincere, pristine and dirty, questions the mechanics of painting by visual lamination. His paintings are a median of impressionism, surrealism and abstraction that transforms acts of defacement into a painterly sublime.
