Robbie Austin is an artist, a teacher, a father, and a husband – though that order fluctuates regularly. He lives in a 112-year-old house, in the town he was born, one-half mile from his high school alma mater, where he has taught for 18 years. Louisiana “bookends” his pilgrimage.
CalArts outfitted his art and philosophy. UCLA cultivated it.
Los Angeles gave way to Houston. Houston gave way to a studio fire and creative output shifted to his growing family. Louisiana called. They answered.
Robbie has exhibited from Los Angeles to New York, Houston to Frankfurt, and several places in between.
