"I UNIFY ALL OF MY SEEMINGLY VARIED WORLDS — OF 'FASHION', OF 'ART', OF 'STUDY' — FOR PEOPLE TO SEE THAT ALL IS INTERCONNECTED"

During the late 1970’s in New York City, Bob Recine, at the time a musician and aspiring artist, befriended Andy Warhol. This crossing of paths strongly influenced Bob Recine’s further career. The iconic artist, rumored to be extremely fascinated by hair, was the one who inspired Bob Recine to explore art – with hair as a central component.

Recognizing his extraordinary talent, Warhol connected him with famous hairdresser Jean Louis David in the French capital. Moving to Paris turned out to be a wise move as the eccentric character took him under his wings and taught him hair sculpting as an art form. When Bob Recine left Paris, his portfolio was packed with innovative visions.

Now, years later, Bob Recine collaborates with contemporary celebrities like Lady Gaga and fine artists like Vanessa Beecroft and Bjarne Melgaard.

His work can be delicately uncomplicated, yet it is bold and untraditional, integrating unusual materials like cellophane, hairclips, playdough, plastic, headphones – even glass. It reflects a finesse, beautifully documented through collaborations with leading fashion and fine art photographers such as Mario Sorrenti, Paolo Roversi, Peter Lindbergh, Helmut Newton, and Irving Penn.
