Robert LeMar’s Artistic Career
Robert was interested in art as a child, and began painting portraits on the beaches of Chicago’s lakefront at the age of 10 to help support his family. He also won various scholarships and awards, and finally was able to study art formally in 1970 after being discharged from the army. He has created a diverse body of work since then, shifting between abstract paintings and more representational pieces.
Robert’s oil paintings have been featured in galleries such as Art at Penn Place in Maryland. This exhibition was a study of realism and how it can be fused with elements of abstract art through light, colour and shape.
