Royal Robertson

1930 - 1997 (Louisiana, USA)

Sign-painter, designer, architect and futurist, who clad his home in evangelical warnings, raged against his former love, and drafted calendars and comic book visions of the apocalypse to come. This mighty American artist is regularly championed and has a dedicated space in the exhibition.
