    Rob Pruitt was born in 1964 in Washington D.C.; he lives and works in New York, USA. Since the early 1990s, Rob Pruitt’s risk-taking investigations into American popular culture have taken many forms. From his notorious Cocaine Buffet (1998) and glitter portraits of pandas to such events as his ongoing Flea Market and Annual Art Awards, Rob Pruitt’s works are a surreal and extravagant interpretation of the pop world and a kaleidoscopic look towards mass culture by exploring the multiples aspects and the paradoxes of our present time. Rob Pruitt’s work has been exhibited at: Kunsthalle Zurich; Air de Paris; The Brant Foundation, Greenwich; MOCAD, Detroit; Aspen Art Museum; Monnaie de Paris; Kunstverein Freiburg; Dallas Contemporary; Académie de France, Rome; Le Consortium, Dijon; Museum Dhondt Dhaenens; Tate Modern, London; Punta Della Dogana/Palazzo Grassi, Venice.
