Robots and the Bauhaus

Mike Slobot Bauhaus Robot Set of 4

I’ve always thought the Bauhaus Aesthetic was cool.

If you are unfamiliar with the Bauhaus, here’s a brief overview – courtesy of Wikipedia

“The Staatliches Bauhaus, commonly known as the Bauhaus (German: “building house”), was a German art school operational from 1919 to 1933 that combined crafts and the fine arts. The school became famous for its approach to design, which attempted to unify the principles of mass production with individual artistic vision and strove to combine aesthetics with everyday function.”

When I first started making prints of my art, I worked hard at conveying the same look and feel of my sculptures and paintings, but using a medium that was entirely new to me. My sculptures are detailed, but simple. A customer told me once that when he looked at his Slobot, he felt like it was both new and nostalgic at the same time. To me, that is a great compliment and really captures what I want my Slobot universe to be.

I feel like the Bauhaus style and my Slobot art is really well represented in these Bauhaus Robot art prints. They are available for purchase here
