LAUNCH installed at the Civic Hotel

We're pleased to announce the installation of David's work Launch at the newly opened Civic Hotel, Autograph Collection.

David and his staff worked with the excellent team at Century Group and art consultant Brenda Bradshaw to develop an artwork that would speak to the vision for the landmark hotel, which was to merge BC’s artistry, culture and flavours with the spirit of entrepreneurial discovery.

From a given moment we look to the current 
And the river on which we pass is time.
Flown from some past, a lone figure plying waters immemorial 
Waters that make mountains into valleys
Ebb and flood made plain
River is drawn to the ocean as time into the timeless
And this vessel carries yet does not contain all that you would be
Steering by a star on some seaward horizon
From which the light reaches for your eye, unbending
Launch your way into winding waters
~ David Robinson, 2018

We hope you'll stop by this exciting new destination and enjoy the artwork!


We're pleased to share news of David's recent achievement! This November he was awarded Langara College's prestigious Outstanding Alumni Award, an honour shared by other leading professionals who have made significant contributions in their fields of professional expertise.
Here is a short video made by Langara College, interviewing David about his work and process:


Opening on Saturday, November 4th at Robinson Studio Gallery, Moving Matter is an exhibition of three artists—Cybele Ironside, Stefany Hemming and David Robinson. 

Please join us for the public opening from 2pm-5pm
# 440-1000 Parker Street.

From enchanting visual fields to complex, entangled objects, Ironside, Hemming and Robinson investigate a convergence of matter and movement, producing evocative forms in paint and sculpture. Using intense processes of shaping, layering and uncovering, the artists give form to spaces of inward reflection and inquisitive states of being.


David’s work has been selected to be featured in this year’s ArtPrize event in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

ArtPrize attracts over 500,000 visitors annually, making it the most attended public art event in the world in 2014 and 2015, according the The Art Newspaper’s annual “Big Ticket List.”

We’re excited to see David's iconic artwork Interval now on view at the Grand Rapids Public Museum until October 8th.
