Bob Watts

(Bangor USA, 1923 – 1988)
He was a main figure in the Fluxus movement. He received a degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Louisville. After the Second World War he moved to New York where he studied painting and story of art at Columbia University. He was one of the creative soul of Pop Art. He became artist of Leo Castelli and Cordier Ekstrom at the beginning of the sixties. But his character, very sensible to Zen Philosophy, brought him to detach from the aggressive world of pop art and to join the Fluxus Group. He worked together with George Brecht, Alison Knowles, George Maciunas and other artists of the Fluxus group.
