Angelo T. Robinson named Artist of the Month
From Special Reports
The Newnan Coweta Art Association has selected Angelo T. Robinson as its featured Artist of the Month for February.
Robinson’s art will be featured in the City Manager’s Office in Newnan’s City Hall thru Feb. 29.
Each month, local artists are named Artist of the Month. The city has collaborated with the Newnan-Coweta Art Association and some local art galleries on this project. It gives local artists the opportunity to display their work in City Hall and a chance for the city to support the arts.
Robinson is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works out of Senoia, GA. A self-taught artist, he joined the U.S. Army in 1992, where he served ten years active duty and four years in the Naval Reserves as a Seabee.
Traveling to locales such as Italy, Spain, Turkey, Greece, Africa, France, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Egypt, the Virgin Islands, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates greatly influenced Angelo’s approach to art. The vibrancy, diverse richness and simple beauty of the cultures he experienced are shown throughout his work.
His work exudes a level spiritually and an organic connection with the human condition. This reflects his experiences growing up as the son and grandson of preachers. Angelo’s creations invite the viewer to participate in a physical, mental or spiritual dialogue with what they experience. Deep vibrant abstracts, joyous colorful mixed-media portraits, and majestic sports pieces are brought to life using vivid colors and bold compositions.
The artist has participated in juried group shows such as Art San Diego Contemporary Art Fair, as well as solo shows in Charleston, SC; Burlington, NC; San Bruno, CA: and many cities across his home state of Georgia. Angelo received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Marketing from Liberty University. Angelo continues to participate in select exhibitions as well as producing his own shows each year. He creates commissioned pieces for residential and corporate clients.
Robinson is a member of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association.
