Robert Hilmersson is one of the country's most interesting and internationally recognized pop & street art artists. The recurring theme in his creation is to put known places, events, animals, nature and big city themes in different situations. Often the human attributes are used to reflect our present in a thought-provoking but at the same time humorous way. The strong visual symbolism attracts thoughtfulness and invites you to reflect on the subject in question. Robert Hilmersson doesn't shy away from the big subjects - politics, social problems and above all the climate - where his characteristic penguins scrutinize the viewer. One of Robert Hilmersson's major sources of inspiration is the pop art icon Andy Warhol, where clear influences can be seen in the use of everyday objects and attributes to reflect larger subjects.
We observe that Robert's art has also started appearing at international auctions in recent years. With notes from for example Phillips auction in London 2021, where the final price exceeds our catalog prices, which confirms our belief in his art in the long term. Of course, just an observation, but at the same time a fun feature to know when you buy a work by Hilmersson that you like!
The work is part of Robert Hilmersson's exhibition which can be viewed at the restaurant Brasserie Bouquet, Tanneforsgatan 8 in Linköping.
