Rob Sato is an artist and writer based in Los Angeles. He makes complex, idiosyncratic work that explores diverse themes often related to memory and transformation. He is best known for his unique watercolor paintings and paper sculpture, working in an organic style that is both wildly loose and meticulously detailed. An inventive and category-defying artist, he layers autobiographical, historical and fantastical narratives together to create thought-provoking works that traverse the realms of absurdity, humor, horror and beauty. In 2005 he received the Xeric Grant to publish his graphic novel “Burying Sandwiches”, and his work has been featured in Giant Robot Magazine, Hi Fructose, Juxtapoz and New American Paintings.
