Robert Zant


BA in Art Studio, UC Santa Barbara, 2011

Robert Zant (b. 1988, Orange, California) explores the ways in which singular events get translated into representations that subsequently travel, shift, and morph. Using the practice of drawing as a starting point, his work merges the seemingly disparate formats of newspaper and personal diary (both translate to diario in Spanish). What gets produced when the investigative qualities of a reporter are placed in tension with an intimate poetics?   

Robert has participated in exhibitions and art book fairs in Argentina, Chile, and the U.S.
