Giant Robot is proud to present Dirty Paper Machines 3 by Rob Sato at GR2.

Paintings and illustrations by Rob Sato have been known to mix animals and humans in strange yet appealing ways. In addition to participating in numerous group and solo art shows since 2001, he received the prestigious Xeric Grant awarded to up-and-coming comic-book artists in 2004, allowing him to publish Burying Sandwiches.

"When I heard this show was actually going to happen, I made plans to drop all projects and cut my hours at my day job," says Sato. "This situation has produced work which digs deeper into themes I usually try to stuff into pictures. It's a rich mix of humor, mayhem, sadness, horror, adventure, heavy metal, science fiction, history, pastoral beauty, questionable behavior, and true love. Of course, some of it is just silly."

For Dirty Paper Machines, Sato is preparing about 60 pieces. Sizes range from tiny one-inch paintings to 30" x 44". In addition, he will have one new mini-comic, some small screenprints, and a large Ultrachrome Giclee print.

A reception for the artist will take place from 6:30 to 10:00 on Saturday, January 17.
