The old Modern and Contemporary Art world model based on a vertically structured paradigm where the artist is placed at the top of the pyramid and the consumer at the bottom has become increasingly irrelevant artistically and commercially as the new, digital-drven culture’s creation-consumption dynamic is now assertively egalitarian,contributive and horizontal in nature.

Biography

ROBODRONE

Robodrone is a successful multidisciplinary artist who has attracted over 250 million social media trendsetting followers who select and share his GIF’s in the multiple of millions daily- worldwide. He is also a songwriter/producer (distributed by INgrooves, digital content division of Universal Music Group via iTunes, Spotify, Amazon) and  broadcast on BBC radio etc.

In addition, he has pioneered  social media enabling art known as 3D+ Social Art which has been on loan to Twitter and Facebook-Instagram headquarters, London as well as featured in Facebook’s own short film for its Mark Zuckerberg convened World Summit, USA in April 2019.

 

Robodrone's new class of social media enabling artworks, has its roots in music. He is the creator of tracks such as 'Download My Heart' a 'modernspeak' lyrics-driiven song, that expresses and celebrates the transformative social changes of the ongoing new Cultural Revolution. Facebook's Music News page, took note of the new politically-inspired tracks by highlighting the arrival of the Alt-Rap genre led by ‘Shoutout FemRap’ and exemplified by the track Hashtag Queens. The music video with lyrics of Hashtag Queens was viewed by over 6 million people according to Facebook Analytics. This success prompted Robodrone to compile a book of Hashtag Memes using images and phrases to expand on the lyrics of the song thereby giving people yet more perspectives with which to navigate the New Era. The book was published via Apple and Amazon  digital books and is also avaiilable in a limited edition hard copy format.

 

A few years ago, Robodrone started experimenting with different  artistic vehicles that could serve as platforms of self-expression. Reflecting over the absence of awareness from the Art World of the revolutionary changes taking place in social behaviour, Robodrone set about creating a new artistic vehicle:  He turned to both the Renaissance artist Botticelli: the Birth of Venus and to the magnificent sculptural designs of master jeweller Faberge for inspiration. Thus Robodrone created his Hashtag Queens 3D+ Social Art throne", a coronation styled sculpture where every woman becomes democratically royal. Even Hollywood superstars such as Jamie Foxx have found it irresistible to sit and pose in.

 

The "Hashtag Queens  3D+ Social art throne" is a new form of artwork that encourages and enables the public to step up onto the throne to create Instaperformances  -‘value added’- artworks  and share them simultaneously with people in their immediate vicinity as well as around the world via selfies and video snaps multicast onto Social Media accounts of friends for comment and feedback. Hashtag Queens throne is the first example of where art is not a traditional top-down, vertical but rather a horizontal, interactive, contributive experience. 'Instaperformance Art', is made possible by networked multicasting communications technology and Social Media cultural practices and it represents the modern fusion of traditional decades of old 'installation art' and 'performance art'.
