As I sit here on the couch in Bruce's newly purchased condo/studio/playground, I can't help but notice the ferocity of this man's approach to life. With several running computers, large monitors and a labyrinth of drawing tables, easels and art supplies, at first glance you might think a full corporation was running its headquarters right out of the living room. Yet, since meeting him a couple years ago, I've always been humbled by his modest yet compassionate and positive approach to life and his work.
When asked, he puts it simply, "I do what want". He tears, he scratches, he scrapes and smashes. Over my period working with him theres not too much I haven't seen him do to a piece. The amazing part about his work to me is how he balances all that with lightning sharp lines within his surreal illustrations. I don't k know where he comes up with his stuff but its weird, and I like it.
When he isn't painting, Bruce goes shredding (downhill mountain biking). Not exactly what most find relaxing, but flying down steep rocky slopes brings zen to the wild Robertson. He travels often to British Columbia to ride some of the best and gnarliest trails in the world. Finally, to top it all off, he's a great web designer while also doing animation and graphic design. All good for the man whose favourite expression is "a man's gotta eat."
Let the art speak for itself. Peace. DdRegalo.com
