Rob Pruitt, ‘All the Pandas’, 2013, Maharam

Among his most recognizable works, Rob Pruitt's panda paintings stem from childhood visits to the National Zoo in Washington, DC. At once cliché and iconoclastic, All the Pandas demonstrates Pruitt's range of representational styles—figurative, illustrative, graphic, and cartoonish—while making an array of pop culture references.

About Rob Pruitt

Rob Pruitt blends a Pop sensibility with witty critiques of the art world. For his Art Awards (2009 and 2010), one of his more conceptual projects, Pruitt presented awards at the Guggenheim Museum in the manner of the Academy Awards; 101 Art Ideas You Can Do Yourself (2001) was a set of DIY ideas for art making, like "make a leaf out of paper and tape it to a tree" or "sell a collector a key to your house." In 2011, Pruitt made The Andy Monument, a ten-foot-tall silver statue of Andy Warhol presented as a public artwork in New York's Union Square.
