Robert Williams: Mr. Bitchin’
Robert Williams Mr. Bitchin’ recounts Williams’ emergence from his Kustom Kulture (Von Dutch, Big Daddy Roth) and Zap Comix (R. Crumb, etc.) roots to become a celebrated artist. It is an irreverent and hilarious view of what is so right about contemporary art in America. He is the founder of Juxtapoz Magazine and was selected for the Whitney Biennial, 2010 at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City and was recently the subject of a show entitled “Conceptual Realism in the Service of the Hypothetical” at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery. Shafrazi has called Williams the William S. Burroughs of the art world and others have credited him with bringing the seminal elements of West Coast Outlaw Culture to the world.
