Something About

Arthur Robins

Arthur Robins was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953.
He began
painting, sculpting and drawing at the age of two and a
half.
He attended art schools throughout his childhood,
receiving many
awards and scholarships. After attending Pratt Institute,
he supported his
art through woodworking, including cabinetry and
furniture making,
while showing in galleries and public spaces.
Arthur has shown his art in Galleries, Museums,and on
the Sidewalks
of New York City and has lived exclusively off the sale of
his art
since 1987. He owned and ran two galleries, one in New
York, one in
California.
In 1993 he was a founding member of A.R.T.I.S.T., a
group that
successfully litigated a Federal landmark case extending
the First Amendment
right of free speech to artists and fine art. He has sold
original
works of art to collectors from every state in the United
States and in
over fifty countries around the world.
