Robert Burden

Artist Robert Burden sent over a time lapse video showing the creation of a giant painting of Voltron from the Transformers. Robert's large scale paintings of toys in evocative decorative settings are breathtaking to look at in person. We had Robert's first solo show here at Roq La Rue earlier this year and the gallery looked like a church with his giant panels looking as colorful and ornate as huge stained glass windows. Check it out!

Mark Ryden "Bunny Cart" print- sold out

We recently collaborated with artist Mark Ryden to do an amazing, under-the-radar print to raise money for The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. We are offering these publicly so contact us RIGHT AWAY by email (not phone please) if you want one...we don't have many. These are only available through Roq La Rue.

These are now sold out- a huge thank you to everyone who picked one up!

Every penny of the retail amount for this print is going to be given to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. This organization offers help for endangered elephants and rhinos in Africa.
You can learn more about them here:
The cost of making the prints has been donated by Roq La Rue Gallery. These prints look really great in person, most people assume they are a drawing.

How the sale will work:
1. Please let me know right away by EMAIL if you would like one, and I will put you on the list. I will contact everyone about whether I can get one for you as soon as I can. It will be first come, first served. Please wait for confirmation before sending a money order.
2. You must send a money order TO ME, but made out to:
The U.S. Friends Of David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust , not Roq La Rue Gallery. No checks, no credit cards, I'm sorry.
3. If you need this print shipped, please send an additional personal check or money order made out to Roq La Rue Gallery for $25.00. The print will be shipped flat.
4. Once I get your payment I will send the print right away! Once I collect all the money orders I will send in a bundle to the US Friends Of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Indiana.
5. Please don't be creepy and put this print on eBay. Mark and I try to be very careful to keep our stuff off eBay. I understand that sometimes pieces need to be sold down the line- it's fine if you want to sell through a message board, forum, or gallery. This is a special print for charity that no one is making money from so please don't buy it to flip it.

Now- onto the good stuff!
