Description

Explore the wonderful lowbrow, pop surrealist world of Rob Coxon in Art From Uranus. Bizarre, colourful paintings that explore such contemporary artistic themes as aliens, cryptozoological creatures, dinosaurs, country and western music, and much more! No tasteful nudes or sleepy landscapes here. Mr Coxon is inspired by B (and frequently C to Z) science fiction movies such as "Attack of the Eye Creatures", "Monster Robot" and "Plan 9 From Outer Space". See alien vampires! See alien dinosaurs! See alien bikini babes! See (but thankfully not hear) alien country and western singers! And find out what really happened to Elvis after he left this planet! Could this be the modern art of the future, the standard against which all future art will be measured? Only time will tell. But there can be no denying the fact that Mr Coxon's kitschy, cartoon inspired art is hitting it's mark and appealing to the attention deficit disorder generation!

About the author

Robert Coxon has played rock, jazz, country, blues and theatrical shows in a variety of venues such as cruise ships, nightclubs, pubs, festivals, concert halls, back yards, television and recording studios. He has backed a wide variety of national and international acts, including Tommy Tycho, Tony Barber, Daryl Sommers, Vanetta Fields, Dick Emery, James Morrison, Barry Crocker, Brian Cadd, John English, Colleen Hewitt, Normie Rowe, Simon Gallaher, Lucky Starr, The Platters, The Drifters, Johnny Young and the Young Talent Team, Chad Morgan, Smokey Dawson, 4 Trax (later to become Human Nature), and Ian Turpie. As a member of various blues, rock and jazz bands, he has supported Albert King, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Canned Heat, Little Charlie and the Night Cats, Lonnie Mack, Mick Taylor (ex Rolling Stones), InXs, Mondo Rock, Midnight Oil, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Mental as Anything, Swanee, Misex, The Swingers, John Paul Young and Rita Coolidge. He has played at many festivals including Jazz in the Vines, Jazz in the Pines/Norfolk Island, Pinetrees/Lord Howe Island, Newcastle, Hamilton, Dubbo, Central Coast and Wollongong Jazz Festivals, Goulburn, Bimbadgen, Thredbo and the East Coast Blues festivals. So far he has had six instructional articles published in international music magazine Modern Drummer. Rob also trained as a high school visual art teacher in the early to mid 70's, but resigned from full time teaching to pursue his musical interests. He continues to paint on the kitchen table and has to date had six solo and group shows. He currently freelances with a number of different bands, including retro swing outfit The Swing Kings. He also teaches drums privately, and continues to do some casual teaching in the public school system to supplement the sometimes erratic earnings from music. When he is a millionaire from the sales of this book, he plans to ditch the casual teaching and spend more time painting. He lives in beautiful Lake Macquarie, south of Newcastle on the coast of NSW Australia, with his beautiful wife of thirty one years Hilda. They have two wonderful daughters, Rochelle and Allana, and a three year old English Staffie named Tiger Lily.
