    My Aspirations

    Many people ask.. What do you expect from painting?

    I truly welcome this question and based on my emotional state at the time, I have answered this question in many ways. Mainly, I yearn to make an emotional connection with the viewer, transport them to a period of time and evoke inspirational feelings.

    As a fine artist, I would list my most important aspirations as:

  • Biography

    Born in 1968

    Born in Massachusetts just outside Rhode Island, this Tiverton, Rhode Island native learned at an early age that visual communications and art would be his calling. Robert has always worked outside the box, including the exact moment he learned that art would be his life's most prominent focus, when in just sixth grade an assigned written book report turned into a complex drawing of the Rhode Island statehouse. Throughout his education, which included being noted as most artistic in high school and a short but impactful stint at the Rhode Island School of Design, he found that corporate communications presented him with challenges that fed his desire to communicate through imagery. After graduating from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale 1988, he began his focus working as a sign apprentice which led to computer graphics and eventually grew into a long career in the corporate world. Offering design and marketing services through his design studio, he established a large client base which included companies such as Polaroid, BMW, Hewlett Packard, Barnett Bank, Protective Products Intl' and others for which he provided several corporate creative services.

    Coming to the realization after over 20 years as a marketer that the marketing industry has evolved into a more deceptive practice than he would have liked, his passionate quest in the corporate world faded and morphed quickly into a life-time burning desire to express his artistic view on the world.

    You'll often here Robert say "I really wish I could eat that burger in the picture, rather than what's being served". At the age of 45, while continuing to support some clients, Robert has thrown caution to the wind and decided to embark on a journey which he believes will enrich his soul.

    "Making people smile and allowing them to make an emotional connection to me and my work has much more value to me at this stage in my life, than motivating strangers to buy a product or service that in most cases they don't need" stated Robert Busse. "My parents have always told me to do what I love and am most passionate about and everything would fall into place. With those words and philosophy, I have chosen to embark upon and label this artistic chapter of my life as my Impulsive Expressionism journey". After traveling abroad to places like Spain, Portugal, South Africa and throughout the Caribbean, now you will find Robert Busse traveling throughout the US seeking people, places and things that inspire him to express his emotional connection to this world through his fine art.

  • About My Work

    Medium

    Whether it be pencil, pastel, ink, acrylic, oil, sculpture or using the side of a nickel to make a sketch on paper, I welcome the challenge of just about any medium. While I prefer 2 dimensional works, limiting myself to a specific medium is not conducive to my explorative personality.

    Technique

    In short, the techniques that are most suitable to me, allow me to rapidly create an expressionist view of my subject. I often impulsively apply color and shape to evoke movement and feeling.

    Inspiration

    I would honestly like to say that inspiration for my work originates from warm and fuzzy feelings, but that would not be the truth.

    While the end result may complete with a feeling of satisfaction, I often paint from anger or something that makes me feel uncomfortable. The objective of the creative process for me helps me come to terms with or find understanding for something that originally made me feel uncomfotable.
