Pop Touched Me: The Art of Rob Pruitt

by Jeffrey Deitch

Pop Touched Me: The Art of Rob Pruitt Synopsis

Pop Touched Me: The Art of Rob Pruitt charts the highs and lows of art star Rob Pruitt's career - how he courted controversy as he rose to fame in the early 90s alongside his then-partner Jack Early and later secured his own place in the art world with shows including Cocaine Buffet, 101 Art Ideas You Can Do Yourself and Pandas and Bamboo. As one of today's most provocative artists, Pruitt's work has attracted critical attention for being consistently engaging while retaining a playful Pop aesthetic. Pop Touched Me , his first comprehensive monograph, examines the full scope of his development over the last two decades, extending beyond his conceptual art to include his painting, drawing, sculpture, textile and industrial design. Friends, fans, artists and art critics add context to the work by describing their personal experiences with Pruitt and his art through a range of essays and quotes.
