Robert

NYC based Artist , Robert, is a fierce contributor to Harlem’s thriving art scene.  Robert developed a love for drawing and painting at 11 years old and never once felt a particular preference to any medium or texture of canvas. His style has evolved over the years, though Robert’s use of different combinations of marker, ink and paint simultaneously have been apparent in his work since the beginning of his career. Robert’s blending and application of vibrant colors to the imagery of his abstract art is a style all his own and serve as a reflection of Robert’s views on life and the beauty around us.
