Rob Kay

Mask McMask Face by Rob Kay

Returning home after several years in Melbourne, Rob Kay was encouraged by his partner to put some of his doodles onto vintage crockery birthing ‘Shit’s About To Get Dainty’. 

Describing his work as illicit lovechild of the band ‘Slayer’ and ‘Antiques Roadshow’, Rob’s work is inspired by his interest in street art, cartoons, songs and his own quirky thoughts: his off beat characters range from Star War’s Chewbacca through to zombie pandas.

Initially putting his drawings on ceramics adopted from op shops and garage sales, Rob’s work can also be found on plywood and ‘photobombing’ older traditional art pieces.

Rob's growing range of characters can be found in selected galleries and design stores across New Zealand.
