It's a hackneyed phrase, but there's no way around it: Walter Robinson is a fixture of the New York art world. He's been in the thick of it since 1973, when he became a founding editor of Art-Rite magazine; this eventually led to a gig at Art in America and, later, his role as the founding editor of Artnet magazine in 1996. The whole time, he's been making paintings of cheeseburgers and pinups and kittens and people taking selfies. "I want to paint paintings of men wearing striped shirts," Robinson recently told the Guardian. "Is that idiotic?" In 2014, the University Galleries at Illinois State in Normal hosted "Walter Robinson: Paintings and Other Indulgences," a retrospective of these works, which has now traveled to the recently reopened Deitch Projects gallery on Wooster Street. The show includes 94 of Robinson's perfectly silly pulp paintings.
