A native of Robstown, Texas, a city once listed as "Most Dangerous" by FBI and "Worst City in Texas" in USA Today, Bobby Marines is a Minnesota-based artist whose work considers the influence of socio economics, race, and the criminal justice system on Chicano(x) identity. Growing up engulfed by poverty, gang culture, and drug epidemics, his interdisciplinary practice references personal experiences which reflect the candid reality of marginalized and underserved communities today.
He is a 2015 Advancing Artist grant recipient through the Southeast Minnesota Arts Council and a 2020 Artist-in-Residence at RALC, through the Minnesota State Arts Board. His latest body of work includes Cascarones (SooVac, Mpls), Cuartito in the Burbs (MadeHereMN, Mpls), and was featured in Making it OK: Art, Bravery, and Mental Health (Rochester Art Center). He recently sat as President of C4, a non-profit arts organization in Rochester and founded the Robstown Arts Committee and Robé Art Blitz, in Robstown, Texas.
