Reb Roberts was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and re-located to Michigan, where is he known for his optimistic and community driven folk art. You can find his pieces in and outdoors all around the city of Grand Rapids.
“Although I never had any formal art education, it hasn’t limited my need to create. I spontaneously create a type of visual and verbal graffiti using any combination of house paint, cardboard, paper, wood, metal, and other found materials. My paintings are both complimentary and contrary to nature. They are not always within the realm of being normal. We should be suspicious of anything that is normal.”
