Art Week Des Moines 2020


Rob Stephens is a print maker who creates works using paint, silkscreen, comic book sequences, and monumental woodcut prints. His works employ a heavy gestural line and saturated color, often at odds with the themes and narratives depicted. He was a professor of art teaching painting, printmaking, drawing and art history. He was a visiting artist at Mission Graphica in San Francisco, and assisted in numerous print workshops across the country, including those at Frogman’s Press and Tom Huck’s Evil Prints. His salacious tell-all comic features “Good Kid Rob,” a neurotic alter-ego. His work is shown nationally and is represented by Moberg Gallery.
