A Feature-Length Documentary Screening in September 2019!


In the feature length documentary movie, D'ART,
Robert paints an 'art-car', using an iconic Australian sports-car,
the Goggomobil Dart, as the canvas for his signature paper-darts.

D'ART captures the creative process, reveals the breadth of Robert's remarkable oeuvre,
investigates collecting in its many forms, and uncovers the car's extraordinary history,
while introducing a diverse and often hilarious cast of experts and protagonists.


(Sneak-peak); watch the creative process in 40-seconds!
