    Robert Nava

    Robert Nava is a contemporary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Using a rough and free-flowing hand, Nava recreates the innocent and unlearned art of childhood. His works are “carefully done wrong,” subverting the rigid fundamentals of painting and conventions of completeness that Nava learned as an MFA student at Yale University. Nava’s paintings often feature imagined mythological figures and histories of the artist’s creation whose drama is brought to life with the frenetic energy of the artist’s brush.
