Robin van Arsdol

RVis well-known as R.V. from the graffiti walls of New York to the galleries in Milan or Berlin. The recurring symbolism come up from his passion, fear, hope and thoughts to improve humanity. The simpel outlined figures and pictures express social issues and comments.

His art was developed during the “graffiti movement” in the 70s and 80s and made him to the famous street art performer. For him this movement was the perfect expression, which has been transformed on walls and public spaces for the audience.
