Robert Therrien, a famous American artist, creates over-sized furniture that even the highest basketball players would have serious problems reaching the top of the table. Being a complete ergonomic disaster, his furniture had no commercial success, but found it’s place in the world of art, and now is being exhibited throughout the world in art galleries.
Robert Therrien made this significant breakthrough back in 1993, when he found that by recreating everyday objects true to their original material and color, but on a greatly enlarged scale, the viewer’s relationship to them changed dramatically. This great finding influenced all his ensuing work.
Robert Therrien was born in Chicago in 1947 and currently lives and works in Los Angeles
