Overview

The ICA brings together a selection of paintings by London-based poet and painter David Robilliard in the first UK institutional exhibition for over twenty years. Born in 1952 on the Channel Island of Guernsey, Robilliard moved to London in 1976 to pursue his interest in art.

He met artistic duo Gilbert & George in 1979 and became good friends with them. Later he modelled for them and appeared in the film The World of Gilbert & George (1981). Robilliard was described by Gilbert & George as ‘the new master of the modern person’.

Robilliard had no formal training. He was gay and regularly frequented the clubs and bars associated with London’s underground scene until his death as a result of AIDS in 1988.
