Rocky Dobey


Rocky Dobey (he/him) has been installing street art in Toronto and other Canadian cities for five decades, beginning with xeroxed posters in the mid-1970’s, and numerous anonymous agitprop billboards, concrete sculptures, laquered books and political plaques in the 1980’s and 90s’s. He has been bolting etched copper memorial plaques to telephone poles throughout this time, and making posters for Anti-Globalization, Reclaim the Streets, Prison Justice, Harm Reduction and many more progressive political causes. Over the past 20 years, Dobey has developed a more formal public practice of intaglio prints, copper sculptures, and more recently large etched works in copper, enhanced with porcelain paint, tar and other materials. The new works address many of the same concerns as the early street art, but applied to a much larger scale, and using techniques derived from printmaking and sculptural traditions.
