Robi the Dog is a Street Artist from Switzerland and about 38 years old. At the age of 16 years he started his career as an graffiti writer that lasted over 10 years. He slowly stopped doing graffiti when he got an Akai MPC. From this point on he started doing Hip Hop instrumentals, that can be found on Soundcloud. He started doing Street Art in the year 2006, since then his visual art is back on the streets.
Robi is working with multilayer stencils, sprayed on paste ups. He choosed that way of working because he is traveling a lot and it is easy to transport a few stencils via train and it is also easy to transport a message through stencil works. Robi´s works are usually very colourful. Robi tries to show everyday situations from a new point of view, especially from an absurd one, in a way Robi is trying to reflect the society with a lot of sarcasm and wants to bring things into question in a funny way. (Take the Frog in the plain as an example, do frogs really like to jump?!)
