JOHN ROBSHAW

After earning a fine arts degree at Pratt and studying traditional block printing in China, John Robshaw journeyed to India to find natural indigo dye for his paintings. Instead, he fell in love with the fabric-making traditions of the local artisans. John found that he could apply a painterly aesthetic to traditional methods by mixing up patterns and overlapping them in a more formally artistic way. His signature look was crafted: an updated spin on the exotic, handmade object; a vibrant mix of sophistication and romantic allure.
