|Born in 1936, Royal Robertson spent most of his life in Louisiana. Robertson began drawing early on and even held a position as a sign painter. He had 11 children with his wife Adell during their time together, but when she left him after 20 years of marriage, it sent him into a "misogynistic rage." In his anger, Robertson began creating works using markers, paints, colored pencils and more on poster board, often times shining a negative light on women. "Prophet" Royal Robertson included religious and futuristic themes, spaceships, aliens, portraits of women, which sometimes were of Adell, in his work.
