Biography

Robert Sgarra was born n Grenoble in 1959. He lives and works in the South of France. Robert Sgarra is a self-taught artist who started painting at the age of thirteen and has been exploring many artistic fields ever since. He is the son of an Italian immigrant father. An artist fascinated by all forms of art, his paintings are inspired by Picasso, Nicolas de Stael, Braque and Matisse. The influence of Léonardo da Vinci can be seen in his sculptures.

This insatiable painter-sculptor employs his mastered skills and techniques to express subjects of flamboyant inspiration. Generous in his pictorial expression, imaginative in his sculptures, Sgarra is known to shake up certain purists, inasmuch as his creative expression may be a stroke of genius, an unexpected depiction or classic.

A wizard of materials and an artist difficult to label, Robert Sgarra revisits pop art as a dedicated colorist in innovative and inventive works, sometimes also daring to use extreme colors. He varies his shapes and colors, in tune with his humor and moods, always spurred and driven to create. In the 1990's he used collage and acrylic on stone to portray celebrities such as Zidane, Luis Fernandez, Patrick Viera, Baresi, Karpov and Pinna.

In his innovative quest, Sgarra also seeks to make timeless art. He searches for new supports influenced by the past, and mixes them with new shapes and forms, while incorporating new techniques that he himself develops. Razor blades or puzzles may serve as substitutes for traditional canvas, the rectangular shape of which he nonetheless keeps. Robert Sgarra is a gifted and prolific artist, a rare alchemist who offers us moments of emotion beyond description.
