Bob Camblin Art

American

Born in Oklahoma in 1928, Bob Camblin studied painting at the Kansas City Art Institute, earning an MFA in 1955. He taught at Rice University from 1967–73 with Joe Tate and Earl Staley, with whom he shared studio space. His influence was a constant undercurrent in the city’s art scene until he left in the early 1980s. Wary of interpretation, he assumed multiple artistic personas, signing himself Anonymous Bosch, Red Stick the Pirate and Mr. Peanut. Camblin passed away in 2010 in LaPlace, Louisiana.
