Giant Robot is proud to present Paper Noise, an art show featuring new works by Rob Sato and Ryohei Tanaka.


Rob Sato and Ryohei Tanaka were once roommates in the infamous “Art’s Crab Shack Apartment” during the late 90s in Oakland, California where they attended the California College of the Arts. They’ve remained friends since. Rob Sato often exhibits with Giant Robot and his work has continued to progress from wild and deranged imagery to a more controlled abstraction. Sato paints with watercolors and succinctly tells a story that’s steeped in historical references. Ryohei Tanaka “paints with scissors” and paper cuts his works. He’ll be exhibiting over 100 paper cuts often depicting beasts and are often bilaterally symmetrical. He’ll also be cutting paper live.


An opening reception for Paper Noise will take place Saturday November 9 th 6:30 – 10:00 p.m.
