If you have driven in Houston downtown, there is a pretty good chance that you have seen one of Wiley Robertson’s pieces catching your attention. Houston-based artist, Wiley Robertson will be presenting an Art Lecture Series on Thursday, March 3 at 1 p.m. in the LSC-North Harris Teaching Theatre in the college’s Academic Building (ACAD-126), at 2700 W.W. Thorne Dr. Houston, TX 77073. Robertson will present a discussion on his experiences as a muralist and street artist in the Houston area. This event is free and open for the community to attend.
“Wiley Robertson is one of the most widely recognized and respected urban artists in the greater Houston area,” said LSC-North Harris professor of art, Gary Conners. “His creativity imparts a strong sense of the impractical and exhibits his relentless and enthusiastic energy.”
Robertson’s use of bright, vivid colors catch your attention as they pop off the walls of buildings downtown, and reflects his exuberant and well-expressed persona. Robertson employs a diverse array of contemporary urban media forms including free-hand spray painted graffiti, stencils, hand-made stickers and hand-painted 2 x 4’s.
“As a creative individual, he seamlessly navigates inspired sign painting, portraiture, pop cultural imagery, letter-based graffiti, community inspired iconography and more,” added Conners.
