Robert Luzar is an artist, writer and educator based in Toronto (CA) and Bath (UK). Engaging live-art, visual technology, and nonstandard forms of drawing, Luzar explores questions of ‘multiplicity’ as a materialist event traversing mark-making and self-interruptive gesture. He publishes writings on art and critical theory, and is Lecturer in Fine Art, at Bath Spa University (UK). He holds a Master of Arts degree from the Chelsea College of Art and Design, and a PhD from Central Saint Martins (UK). And his works are exhibited internationally in galleries, museums, and live-art events, some recent projects of which include: (2015) DRAWinternational (FR); (2014) Life and Limb (Orillia Museum of Art & History, CA), In Friendship/Mit Gelassenheit (Künstlerhaus Dortmund, DE); (2013) Draw to Perform (Performance Space, UK); (2012) Level (Talbot Rice Gallery, UK); (2011) The Creekside Open (curated by Phyllida Barlow, APT Gallery, England), London International (curated by Edward Lucie Smith, KCCC, Lithuania).
