Art By Robert Kent Wilson
Robert Kent Wilson is a native Washingtonian and a fine artist working in many mediums with applications onto different materials including canvas, vinyl, wood and paper. Robert’s recent work explores striking, abstract landscapes and color fields contrasted by organic patterns and textures.
Robert received a BFA in Fine Arts from the Tyler School of Art where he studied art, design and criticism. Upon graduation, he began a successful career in graphic design that eventually allowed him to pursue his fine art again, garnering exhibitions of his work in more than a dozen solo and group shows including at Heinemann Myers Gallery in Bethesda, MD, APEX Gallery and the Artists’ Museum in Washington’s Penn Quarter Arts District. Additionally, Robert has completed a number of private commissions and public art projects, such as Art on Call, the DCCAH Art in Public Places commission and most recently the DCCAH comprehensive Artist Created- Metropolitan Branch Trail Identity and Public Art Projects.
When he’s not creating art, Robert is the Principal and Creative Director of BLANK, a design firm in Washington, DC and a part time design faculty member at Catholic University in Washington, DC.
My recent work explores striking, abstract landscapes and color fields contrasted by organic patterns and textures. My process is experimental, mixing media that challenge and expand the boundaries of contemporary art.
