Amazing life-sized Chalk Drawings by Robin Rhode

Amazing Chalk Drawings by Robin Rhoderobin rhode: chalk bikes, bulbs and barbed wire at lehmann maupinfrom now until august 21, 2015, lehmann maupin’s new york gallery presents the work of south african artist robin rhode. the exhibition ‘borne frieze’ — a riff on the commonly used south african phrase ‘born frees’, given to the generation born after the end of apartheid — includes several new works that embody the importance of drawing to the artist’s multi-faceted vision. expanding upon rhode’s recurring use of visual and verbal puns, the exhibition juxtaposes the heritage of his home country with the ephemerality of his artistic practice.
