Charlie Roberts (b. 1983, Kansas, US), lives and works between Norway, New York, and Los Angeles. He creates dialogues between worlds: the real and conventional and the surreal and eccentric, across a range of practiced techniques, such as painting and sculpting.  

He draws inspiration from art history and popular culture, while referencing Greek mythology, ancient narratives, folklore traditions and allegories. These references are evident due to the “fearless” subject matter, style, and technique. His cramped paintings with multiple points of view, add to the energy, determination, and uniqueness of his artistic practice; something visible in his subject matter due to the slender, either human or non-human figures, placed in a mystical, almost ethereal atmosphere.
