Bob Clyatt grew up roaming the countryside of Northern California and studied sculpture formally over eight years at various institutes.
He studied chiefly at The Art Students League of New York, but his work also clearly reflects the zeitgeist of UC Berkeley in the 70s. His sculpture is a fusion of ancient and modern, organic and technological.
His aim is to explore mankind’s oldest collective knowledge, encode it in sculptures and relate it to contemporary issues and audiences. To this end, Clyatt uses ancient materials and methods combined with modern technology, in an effort to make ancient aspects contemporary.
His work has been extensively exhibited in New York, where he lives.
