Robert W. Firestone

Robert W. Firestone





Robert W. Firestone was born in 1930 in Brooklyn, New York. In 1946, at the age of 16, he enrolled at
the University of Syracuse and in 1951 graduated from the University of Berkley. After which he began
to paint and immediately revealed, along with his interest in psychology, a strong and persistent passion
for art. During this period, he executed a series of landscapes seen in the course of his travels, as well
as, while treating patients at the limits of emotional suffering, he completed numerous portraits of
friends, patients and colleagues in a style which can be defined as “humanitarian expressionism”.
His
activity as a theorist in psychotherapy and his intense expressive research has lead him in recent years
to dominate masterfully the language of digital artistry. All of the inspiring motives of his creative work
derive from his own human and professional experiences, as is evident in the cycles of works he has
completed over the last ten years. In early 2000, he began to exhibit his work in international galleries
and museums, as well as in public and private collections.
