B orn in Port of Spain Trinidad, Robert was introduced to Caribbean art by a myriad of Caribbean artists, who later became role models in his development. He studied at The Art Students League in New York and briefly at the School of Visual Arts. Most of his training has been focused on Life Drawings, though Robert enjoys figure painting and watercolor and oils. Among the most striking features of Robert’s work is his liberal use of color. “At some point you have to let the color carry you, just as dancer allows the rhythm to inspire Art is Life. I paint my subjects as I experience them. Figurative paintings and drawings are my main interests. I look at the human figure with strong desire to render likeness, to capture and convey the essence and character of the individual, be it beauty, pain or movement. This is what I aspire to bring to the viewer in the medium of watercolors, charcoal, oils and graphite drawings.”
