Robert Gniewek
American, b. 1951
Follow

Considered a second-generation photorealist painter, Robert Gniewek paints scenes of mid-century American roadside culture and contemporary cityscapes. Using three or four photographic images of his subjects, Gniewek meticulously produces large-scale paintings of diners, movie theaters, motels, gas stations, cafes, and urban vistas—usually in his native Detroit. Like Robert Cottingham and Ron Kleemann before him, Gniewek shares a love of American signs of the 1940s and ’50s, though as the member of a younger generation he sometimes portrays them as neglected and time-worn, expressing nostalgia for a bygone era
