Joe Roberts


Artist Joe Roberts has spent more than a decade honing a deeply unique and unapologetically hallucinogenic style of art. Through paintings, drawings and mixed-media works, Roberts navigates a world of cosmic imagery, pop cultural detritus, and shifting geometric forms, bringing to life both the creeping unease and the uncanny humor of the psychedelic experience. Collecting over 100 new and recent works along with an introduction by Hamilton Morris (Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia), We Ate the Acid is the latest product of Roberts’ visionary journeys and a testament to his expansive, singular imagination.

Joe Roberts has worked as an artist in San Francisco for more than a decade. His mixed media work has been released in various formats over the years and shown nationwide to great acclaim. Joe creates artwork which represents a variety of mixed media formats and is reminiscent of work from Jean-Michel Basquiat and Joseph Cornell. Collage, paintings, diorama and figurines all play a role in the world he has created and is constantly reinterpreting. Roberts has collaborated with musicians, filmmakers, and streetwear companies, most recently with Supreme for their 2017 fall line.

Hamilton Morris is an American writer, documentarian, and scientific researcher who lives in Brooklyn, New York. He created a series for Vice entitled Hamilton's Pharmacopeia documenting the history and effects of drugs on society and human health.
