Robert LeMar

Robert has been painting since the age of 10.
Robert's unique style toes the line between representational and abstract art.
As a child, Robert won various scholarships and awards.

Robert LeMar is an American artist who was born in 1950 in Michigan and grew up in Chicago. An appreciation for some of the greats like Rothko and Rauschenbarg kindled an interest in abstract art in Robert, and he now creates paintings that are part figurative, and part abstract geometry. Through a unique lens, Robert paints pictures of the nature, everyday scenes and people that surround him, showing them through the prism of geometry and reducing their definition. The result is a captivating and one-of-a-kind approach to still life painting.

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.
