About Robert Tillberg
There are no upcoming events
Rob’s passion for art began at a young age in his hometown of Glastonbury, CT. As a child, you’d most likely find him drawing his toys rather than playing with them. He still has vivid memories of drawing life-sized versions of his Star Wars figures on multiple pieces of paper that he taped together. His love for art continued through high school and into college attending Radford University in Virginia. Where he majored in Art with a concentration in Graphic Design along with spending a semester in Greece to earn a minor in Art History. After graduating in 1999, he returned back to Connecticut and continued onto graduate studies at Central Connecticut State University. He’s now been in the St. Pete area since 2001 and now resides in Gulfport, FL with his wife and two pups. Within the next few weeks they will be packing up and heading to Southern Oregon to begin their next chapter.The subject matter, style, technique, size, substrate and medium of his work is all over the place. Viewing his portfolio would lead you to believe it to be the work of several different artists. Though his palette's emphasis of colors & contrast can be seen throughout. Claiming to easily get bored & inspired he weaves between the use of inks, acrylics, oils or whatever it takes to create his vision. Whatever that may be, yet over the past few years he has been drawn to the freedom in abstract art. Extra large pieces in particular. His work can be found in a number of local galleries, furnishing stores and festivals he attends in the winter. However, the majority of his sales occur online. Where he puts in just as many hours into promoting and marketing as he does painting, where the power of the Internet has allowed his work to be enjoyed in homes around the world.
