Over the next several years, Roberts participated in numerous group shows, establishing relationships with major art spaces/culture-makers such as Afropunk, Columbia College, DePaul Art Museum, Chicago Art Department, and Zhou B Art Center. After a string of successful shows in 2010, Lyons Weir Gallery (New York) began representing Roberts . At this time, Christophe Roberts was painting large animal figures and working in graphic design. It was in this period Christophe Roberts innovated his celebrated and widely commissioned sculptures made from Nike shoeboxes. He is the only known artist working with these materials , and is featured on Nike’s website . About this work, Roberts has said the animal figures are a “metaphor for his emotions” and ambitions. Roberts was encouraged to vary his practice and processes when considering Renaissance artists, about whom he says, “always had a team that helped push forward their vision. They were not only artists, they were poets, they were architects, they were painters, they were muralists. ” Following the flooding of his studio space in Pilsen, and a car accident that required 5 months of physical therapy, Roberts decided to move to Harlem. He immediately began work in the fashion industry designing t-shirts for major brands while maintaining a studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn . Roberts sold pieces from his studio, via his gallery, and through New York collector Gabriel Schumann. In 2013, Oliver “Power” Grant of Wu-Tang Clan invited Roberts to collaborate on a show for Wallplay Gallery. That same year, Roberts installed at the Complex Magazine office. Coincidentally, Roberts shares a birthday with the 1980 release date of the Air Max. His ongoing commissions with Nike have included sculptures at NikeLab storefront in Soho, the Manhattan flagship store, and the Kobe IV shoe release at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In 2016, Roberts was selected as a Nike Master of Air. His work has been featured in art journals, and on lifestyle and culture brands .
Christophe Roberts (born March 26, 1980) is a Bahamian-American multidisciplinary artist working in sculpture, graphic design, painting, and creative direction . His work has been widely exhibited, and has been commissioned by high profile clients. He explores masculinity, personal history, and consumerism by repurposing everyday objects such as building materials and up-cycled Nike shoeboxes.
