Robert Maloney's 2D and 3D constructions incorporate elements of the urban landscape, typography, topography and architecture. Many of his pieces straddle the line between a structure being torn down and a structure being erected. His work is a series of 21st century archeological digs through layer upon layer of imagery and information that have piled up through decades of time. Maloney combines layers of paint, textures, screenprinting, digital elements and 3D structures to create pieces of art that evoke the feeling of crumbling walls, discarded billboards and old warehouses.
Maloney was recently profiled in the book Art Revolution: Alternative Approaches for Fine Artists and Illustrators published by North Light Books where he has numerous pieces featured as well as a step by step documentation of the creation of one of his pieces. Since 2007 Robert has been an adjunct instructor in the Illustration department at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
