Robert Deyber - High on the Hog, hand-signed lithograph. About Robert Deyber: Born 1955 Robert Deybers artwork is full of surprises. Every canvas revels in the artists sense of humor, each painting a visual rendering of a clever turn on a common phrase. Despite his sense of fun, however, Robert Deyber is a seriously skilled painter. He is endlessly intrigued by visual imaginings that reside in the realm between reality and fantasy, and he is clearly able to render these imaginings brilliantly.
His artwork is highly narrative in nature; his paintings convey an almost dreamlike quality to the bemused viewer. Born and raised in Greenwich, Connecticut, Deyber began drawing at an early age.Art was a necessary means of escape from an otherwise difficult world, one in which he set his mind free to visit the most remote placesa wheat field in South Dakota, the dunes of the Gobi desert, the moons of Jupiterall within easy reach for a very imaginative young boy. Throughout his paintings, Robert Deyber moves in and out of visual themes and story lines. Compelled to create imagery where he uses a combination of highly stylized composition, light and contrasting colors, his goal is to apply all three skillfully, thereby drawing the viewer into his painting without overpowering or confusing. Deyber is a visual raconteura storyteller with a paintbrush, his minds eye planted deep within the subconscious.
With artistic roots that hail from the Surrealist movement, among his heroes are Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali. While many of Deybers paintings contain elements derived from dreams created out of the unpredictable imagery found in the subconscious, the extraterrestrial flowers have more in common with the worlds of alternate natural history imagined by Alexis Rockman or Walton Ford, and the visual rendition of current phraseology and popular culture are more in the tradition of the Pop Art movement. It is, in the end, the undecided tone between sincerity and irony that makes Robert Deybers artwork distinctly contemporary, his visual vocabulary distinctly his own, but with a worldwide audience. Deyber collectors transcend all traditional boundaries.Private and corporate collectors throughout the United States as well as throughout Europe and Asia have acquired Deybers paintings. His work has strong appeal and continues to be collected by many in the entertainment industry, including independent film producers, well-known screenwriters and designers. Tom Petty and his wife Dana are Deyber collectors, recently commissioning the artist to create imagery for Pettys newest album Highway Companion. Robert Deybers career has taken him all over the world. He lived for a while in the Umbria region of Italy, and also lived for a time in San Francisco and New York before moving to Boston. He currently resides in Connecticut and is exclusively represented by Martin Lawrence Galleries.
