What About Bob?
In Bob’s own words:
My vision is to add to public appreciation of art by creating attractions to given public areas, beautifying buildings (some historical) and maintaining a sense of pride and ownership within the community. As a graphics designer with an expertise in larger-than-life designs, I create eye- appealing environments, which compliment a prescribed ambiance or motif. I encompass multiple detailed and focal areas into life-like settings with accurate attention to detail and accuracy, expand confined, enclosed space with added color and perspective. Having the understanding and vision of ideas and transforming them into desired compositions that make for impressive graphic presentations. As a northwest Artist, I am familiar with much of its history. I research my projects and apply that knowledge with accuracy to detail and perspective to create both historical and modern environments, sometimes intertwining the two.
Working as a community artist and designer, I personalize my designs to entail local, familiar persons and places within the community to give the viewer a ” feeling of ownership”. I believe then that art becomes a matter of community pride and insures the community, as a whole; values and appreciates what they can call “their own”. I take pride in my accomplishment of these public art works, which have taken plain un-noticed walls and turned them into beautifying, community centerpiece attractions.
