David Robinson

Figurative Art

November 6, 2020

David Robinson is a Canadian artist known for his striking sculptures that incorporate a variety of materials ranging from bronze, steel, and silver to concrete, mirror, and paper. While his works are figurative, he often adds psychological and mythological twists to his subjects by situating them in environments that speak to the inherent tensions of human life. Robinson’s reverence for symbolism and imagery combined with his incredible skills allow the viewer to surmise and discover the allegorical through a contemporary form. Born in Toronto, he attended a high school specializing in sculpture, continuing his studies at Langara College, and became an Honors Graduate in the Sculpture Program at the Ontario College of Art.
