Malik Roberts (b. 1990, Brooklyn,NY) is a Brooklyn based painter and multi media artist creating deconstructed portraits with controversial contemporary subjects , which explore the relationship between visual culture and reality today.In the tradition of artists like Magritte and Richard Prince ,Roberts often works with images and conventions recognizable from the media ,re-framing his appropriated source material to reveal the absurdity of everyday life. While his visual language combines influences of modern and pop-art ,the artist’s sophisticated compositions provoke engagement rather than astonishment ,inviting the viewer to consider the impact of visual media on the consumption of ideas in the Digital Age.
