Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Human figure as an icon, symbol, sign. "Humanography" performed by Robert Lardus refers to the art of calligraffiti. It is true that the artist does not use typical calligraphy, typography and graffiti. He creates new symbols based on simplified drawings of the conventional figure of a human being: Calligraffiti in Robert Lardus "Humanography", by using simple iconic forms referring to letters. In this way, the artist obtains a completely new, wider message. The figures have been changed aesthetically, they go beyond the literal meaning of human drawings. The characters or their groups form complex visual compositions. For Robert Lardus, the reference to calligraffiti is an aesthetic and intellectual experience. It allows him to express himself uncontrollably. This is definitely more than the traditional use of icons and signs. It is a way to create a completely new symbolism.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Dublin

Based in: Dublin

Robert Lardus is vegetarian, buddhist, and abstractionist. All three factors combined are rare where he comes from: the deep Midwest of the United States of America. He studied painting and then went on a long journey through Asia. This is where he started his transformation. What we see now is a full-grown artist submerged in transformative nature, influenced by biological processes, anamorphic shapes.
Robert lives in a world of forms and colors. He cultivates his individual perception of the world, looking for simple, but sumptuous beauty.
His technique is based on layers and texture paint. Robert’s artworks can be associated with richly woven renaissance tapestry in which the colors are distilled from the experiences of multiple senses.
Lardus is fascinated by process painting. He invented dozens of original painting techniques. His “Humanography” combines the idea of writing abstract characters with icons depicting the human being as individual or submerged in a community.
