“ROBERT PROCH – SKETCHES” : a collection of all the preserved drawings and sketches created by the artist in the years 2003-2018.
We had the opportunity to hang around with artist Robert Proch in 2015 at the No Limit festival in Boras, Sweden. Unassuming and bright, his massive wall seemed to us to be insurmountable, but he excitedly and with great ease jumped on the cherry picker and dove into the explosion that he had sketched – pouring color and gesture into his work; bending and twisting the axis, capturing the flying energy and elements that appeared to jump off and fly toward the viewer. Later at dinner in a private home, it was a pleasure to speak with him. A warm, polite, and thoughtful guy – you would not necessarily know that his internal art view was so expansive… except for his darting eyes perhaps, which didn’t appear to miss anything.
Taken from us all too soon, Proch already had made such an impression artistically in the street art/mural art/fine art worlds as someone who had a true talent and a drive to go where he wanted to. In light of this, we’re pleased to see this new collection of his sketches published by his family and friends, with all proceeds going to the Robert Foundation. We agree with them when the family says, “Let Robert’s art not be forgotten and keep bringing us happiness and joy.”
“The publication contains over 600 works, which were the starting point for the creation of paintings, murals, and animations. Arranged chronologically, they show the artistic evolution of Robert Proch and make it possible to distinguish periods that shape his work. All works are presented in their original format and colors, faithfully reflecting the uniqueness and style of Proch’s work.”
We’re pleased to share this book with the BSA family and are glad that we can help Robert’s family and foundation to bring his work to an appreciative audience.
