About

Robert Lebsack creates artworks using mixed media with ink, acrylic and charcoal on archival copies of newspaper or sheet music. His street art tends to focus on social and cultural issues using bits and pieces of headlines, articles and ads as the background. Lebsack layers human subjects and thought-provoking landscapes, using the confrontation between his subjects and a surreal background to address societal trends, such as materialism, loneliness, changing environments and isolation. His works have been represented by Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles since 2013. His paintings have been exhibited and collected worldwide, including New York, Singapore, Zurich, Los Angeles and Hong Kong. Lebsack created this unique 24 inch tall by 18 inch wide vertical artwork using mixed media including acrylic paint, ink, and charcoal on sheet music mounted on a wood panel. His imagery is hand drawn with great detail. His artworks extend from the front onto all sides, adding a visual impact from every angle. This artwork does not require framing. It is wired and ready to hang. It is signed by the artist on the back. Affordable US and global shipping. A certificate of authenticity is included. Lebsack’s artworks tell us stories about ourselves. They have a remarkable ability to filter our dreams and aspirations while visualizing edgy, half-buried perceptions troubling us about the world around us. Many of his paintings express courage and offer a form of and engagement with our continually shifting surroundings. Lebsack says about his art: “It’s about new ways of thinking for the future generations. Hopefulness in young dreamers and a paradigm shift away from conventional reasoning in thoughts and actions. Some social norms can be good but they can also hold some people back, stunting our growth individually and as a society.” Robert Lebsack received his formal training in illustration, design and photography at California State University, Long Beach, where he earned a BFA degree in Illustration in 2004. After graduating, Robert went on to work full time as a studio Artist/Muralist and Commercial Illustrator for an Interior Design Company where he designed graphics and painted murals for restaurants, schools and universities throughout the country. With his industry experience, Robert moved on to focus on creating fine art.
