Rebel Not Taken is the art brand of Bob Osborne.

Bob Osborne’s ancestry can be traced back through a long line of downtrodden peasants, convicts, rag-and-bone men and all-round riff raff. The heroic sort that has always scratched a dodgy living on the outside edge of society.

The Rebel Not Taken leit-motif runs through Bob Osborne’s Art. His work across mixed media is inherently imbued with the subversive and ribald imagery of an instinctive miscreant. Despite being a published poet (A Moon In Leo 1977) and possessing a keen philosophical end existential bent, Osborne prefers to create art with everyday materials and deconstruct found objects. He often incorporates low-brow language and slang into his work and uses visual metaphors that draw extensively on popular culture and taboo humour.
