Walter Robinson, artist

This is my brother, Walter, from a longish profile in the New York Observer.

In larger cultural circles, Mr. Robinson may not be a household name but in New York’s art circles there is, in a way, no one who is more ubiquitous or whose life better reflects the exigencies of the New York art world over the past 40 years.

“He is one of the most underrated, unknown, undervalued artists of the late 20th century,” Barry Blinderman, director of Illinois  State University’s galleries.

Dude’s famous, and I knew him when.

P.S. Back in 2007, I was interviewed for an article in Art in America about the decline of visual art reviews in newspapers. Reader angered ensued. You can kind of see that attitude is in our genes.
