Robert Holden is a stateless artist.
He dedicates his work to share what he loves. Mainly humans and nature. Meeting and sharing the diversity of cultures, of individuals and civilizations is a primary drive. Hence he is often traveling.
In many series he mixes reality and personal narrative.
He also publishes editorials regularly on international magazines, mainly travel or encounters.
“ If you don’t believe you can make your world a tiny bit better through what you do… the go do something else! “

“ [Holden’s] images uncover those emotions procured through his discovery of the other, under differing lights and reference points . “

Curated by Evan Bennett and Silvia Fuster, VAMOS Architects, the 3 weeks exhibition was installed as large scale prints in public locations throughout DUMBO neighborhood, such as walls, scaffoldings, garages, buildings.
