Texan artist Robert Yarber is renowned for his dizzying works with figures flying in the night sky above glittering megacities. His extraordinary hallucinatory style has been credited as the inspiration for Terry Gilliam’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and has earned him global acclaim. These are works that delight, shock and engage in equal measure and which require the viewer to immerse themselves entirely in Yarber’s universe  – like the dapper death figure in this etching who has become a sort of mascot in his art.

Born in 1948, Robert Yarber has exhibited internationally since the early 80’s, having achieved recognition through his inclusion in the 1984 Venice Biennial, and the 1985 Whitney Biennial. In 1989 Yarber was included in the “Horn of Plenty” exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.

His theoretical works include “The Cloud of Unknowing”, Configurations, John Hopkins University Press, 2008, and “The Body of the Painter in the Face of the Virtual”, Art and Design, London, 1996. Robert Yarber is Distinguished Professor of Art at Pennsylvania State University.

When not painting and drawing, Yarber performs with his noise band, Captain Bob and the Psychopomps.
