Robert Sellers never studied art making or art history in any school or with any other professional artists. He never belonged to any artistic societies and lived a majority of his life off the grid. The style, subject and techniques crafted and expressed by Sellers are captivating and raw. His brightly colored acrylic paintings on board are filled with humor and intrigue. “There is a purity to their awkwardness which makes them incredibly endearing,” says Tucker. “They are unlike any other work I have come across and that always garners my attention.”
Robert (Bobby) Sellers grew up in Buffalo before leaving on a birthright trip to Israel in his early twenties. Before his recent death he lived and worked in Jerusalem, Israel and Palm Beach, FL. By the end of his life he had grown distant from friends and family leaving behind an entire estate to a friend who cleaned the main house adjacent to the garage apartment he rented.
