Roberto Voorbij

Roberto Voorbij (1974) lives and works in Amsterdam, holds a bachelor degree in Visual arts and Art History from the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and has attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he took classes from a.o. Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle during the late 1990s. Voorbij is an interdisciplinary artist apart from working with ‘ready made’ materials, he works with 3D Software, (digital) collage and video.

Besides (national) identity are commerciality and public space recurring themes in Voorbij's work. What highly fascinates him about this is the underlying history, politics and marketing strategy of our seemingly neutral environment. His works are often socially critical. Another recurring theme concerns the art world / art market and the way in which the artist manifests itself here, as well as the autonomy of the artwork that’s being questioned.

In addition to a representation by online gallery Saatchi Art, Voorbij is represented by Leontia Gallery in London and Klein Editions in Manchester. He is also part of the artist collective POPinnART. Last year he exhibited his Artist Portraits at the Amsterdam X BANK and W Hotel. With POPinnART he was selected for Art The Hague. As part of a group show his short ‘Without clear purpose’ screened at Museum of the Moving Image, New York, and this year at the International Biennial of Asunción in Paraguay. Further, is one of his Artist Portraits part of the traveling group exhibition 'The World of Frida' in the United States.
