Rob Gray is a human-shaped art maker in Portland, Oregon. They are a founding member of Lovely Book Club, which is sort of a yacht-less yacht club, but also a drinking club and an amateur football (soccer) club. They spend most of their time working for Full Life, a day program for adults with developmental disabilities, where they produce the Full Life Radical Radio Show, a bi-weekly show on Freeform Community Radio which features interviews, theater, and music by folks with disabilities. Rob is the author of various books, chapbooks, and zines, including The Immaculate Collection / The Rhododendron and Camellia Year Book (1966) [University of Hell], Ticklish Animal [Bone Tax Press], and Park House [Black Cake Records], and enjoyed the honor of writing the introduction to Alive At The Center: Contemporary Poems of the Pacific Northwest [Ooligan Press]. Rob's writing has been featured in Tin House, The Portland Review, Old Pal, NAP, Love Symbol Press and various other wonderful publications. Rob was born in London, England, grew up in Karlsruhe, Germany, lived in the Bay Area and Santa Barbara, CA before settling in the Pacific Northwest. They have been living, working, making and sharing art, music, and poetry in Portland since 2009. You can explore their work at www.robertduncangray.com.
