Street Art From Beijing and Robbbb

Posted on February 21, 2013

Street Artist Robbbb has some new neighbors posted in his city of Beijing, the three thousand year old Chinese capital metropolis of 20.6 million people. By wheat-pasting these still frame figures of unromanticized men, women, and children back onto the street where they travel, Robbbb calls attention to the every day person, and by doing so, somehow exults them. It’s an ephemeral art, but it lasts a little longer than the momentary flash of a person passing by and it give Robbbb an opportunity to look at and contemplate the lives of people in his city  and perhaps to give them the equivalent of a visual “shout out”.

“No matter what nationality, what identity, what gender or what age, I like depicting  figures from the city,” says the artist of his work.
