Robert '3D' del Naja

British, b. 1965

Accomplished multidisciplinary artist Robert del Naja is well known internationally as a founding member of the band Massive Attack and as a visual and graffiti artist. His background in graffiti began with The WIld Bunch crew in 80s Bristol, where under the name ‘3D’ he helped blaze the trail for the urban art movement to follow. Del Naja’s visual art is analogous to his music and his work has represented Massive Attack since the band’s inception, appearing in stage visuals and on multiple covers including James Lavelle’s UNKLE project. In its myriad forms, his creative practice grapples with issues of alienation, social and political unrest, and the redeeming possibilities of countercultural movements.
