Born in Lyon, France. Robert Combas was the leader of "La Figuration Libre" movement of the 80s in France, and is regarded as one of the most prolific artists of today. Combas is a multitalented artist in painting, sculpting, poetry, and music. The amount of energy and passion Combas has for arts is just the same as for guitar, as he once said that "mine painting is rock (Ma peinture c'est du rock)". The main reason to the growing popularity of Combas' works is because he's able to speak the language of the world, across boundaries through his works. Combas composes his work by integrating humanity, historical war, religions, mythology and music spontaneously and simultaneously, and finally forming the love-hate relationship of art. Major museums such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Cartier Foundation in Paris, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Yung Tu Museum of Art in Tainan all have works of Combas in their collection.
