Collected: Berlin, Germany

Robert Santoré is an internationally collected contemporary artist, painter, sculptor & photographer with studio practice in Manhattan, New York and at his Texas Art Ranch in Montgomery, Texas

Santoré is best known for his series of large format, word paintings, abstract figures, heavily influence as a boomer generation painter, the colors, music, fashion and advertising of the 1960s & 70s he was exposed to as a child. His "neo-postwar abstract expressionist paintings", a practice he began in 1986. He started introducing Words and numbers into his early and notable abstract paintings, such as "Famous" (1986), "Baby Linen" (1987) "Bull Market" (1988) and "JunkBond" (1989) thus reinstating content. His use of defined or extant symbols differentiated his paintings from the gestural abstraction of the Abstract Expressionists, (however he including this method of painting) whose paintings were often understood as expressive of the individual personality or psychology of the artist. Because Santoré imported well-known motifs into the fine arts, his paintings can be read as both representational (a factories, figures, aircraft) and as abstract patterns. Curators and collector's characterize his choice of subjects as freeing him from decisions about composition. Santoré has remarked: "What’s interesting to me is developing an interconnected visual language and exploring common element across various narratives and composition . It’s not all mine,” or, that the visual language I repete are "is the mind already knows and challenges the viewer to relearn what they recognize."

Robert has had the great fortune of meeting many other celebrated artists starting with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat while still a student at Parsons. Others artists he has admired and met are Jim Dine, Ed Ruscha, Ed Moses, Robert Longo, Billy Al Bengston, Larry Bell, Craig Kauffman, Chuck Close, Julian Schnabel, Eric Fischl et al.
