Robert Gardiner

Being an artist is Robert Gardiner’s way of life – it is the means through which he connects and contributes to his community. Gardiner has been an artist for more than thirty-five years, exhibiting his art both in Canada and internationally. His cultural practice includes a multitude of mediums including photography, film, video, animation, drawing, assemblage, and sculpture. Gardiner feels strongly about social issues and is involved in supporting cultural facilities, artist-run collectives, and housing advocacy groups. He calls himself homeless. Since March 2008, the DTES has become his permanent neighborhood. Gallery Gachet helps him to fulfill his need for community at large; and, specifically, to work collectively with other like-minded and like-hearted artists.
