Robert Williams - Custom Car Artist

Post by andrew666 on Tue Aug 09, 2011 8:19 pm

Still going strong at sixty-eight, Robert Williams was part of the Zap Collective that developed on the margins of psychaedelia in the sixties and helped to define its imagery. His love of custom cars makes him a friend of ours too!



Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Robert grew up surrounded by hot rods and custom cars as his father ran a locally well-known drive-in restaurant.



Each generation of musicians has sought to claim Robert for their own, from rockabilly and surf through punk up to heavy metal and bands such as Guns'n'Roses.



Robert admits that his paintings are a kind of trap - you stare at them, sometimes for hours, wondering what they could possibly mean



Robert now lives in the San Fernando Valley
