Bio

Robert Buzek

Born in Berwyn, Illinois, Robert grew up in Oak Park, Illinois until his mid-twenties. Robert spent a month on a Navajo reservation in the late nineties, and that experience left a profound impact on his life.  That experience changed the way Robert sees this world and why he paints. Robert is currently based in Mchenry, IL, and he is a self-taught artist who pursued his art later in his life.  His work is described as a journey into a world of energy and dreams which he refers to as Dreamsword Art. Robert feels like he’s got one foot in this world holding a paintbrush and one in the other holding a dream sword cutting through the symbolism of his dreams. The subjects of Roberts’ artwork tend to relate to metaphysical or esoteric themes, but Robert’s prefers to work with whatever comes out of his dreams.

“I think of my work as a journey into mysterious places, which have a dreamlike quality. The subjects of my artwork tend to relate to spiritual or esoteric principles and ideas, but they can take on any personal meaning because of the abstract nature of my work. I also love color. My work tends to have vibrant rich hues, and I try to embody the feelings that the colors instill. My work is evolving as I am, and I grateful for this journey of mystery and expression.”
