The dark parts of my brain

January 16, 2018

To the people who have been following me and love the creepy cute paintings and illustrations will notice that the work I am doing lately is a bit darker. Well, don't fret, I am not completely abandoning these type of works but I will be working more from the dark reaches of my brain muscle.

I hope you all enjoy what you see and don't forget, you can always commission me to do what you want to see.

2018 = big changes

January 09, 2018

Hello fiends! Welcome to 2018! If you follow me on Facebook or any social media, you have probably seen that I do a lot of shows in the Chicago area and don't travel much  with my art, well that is all changing this year. To start off my travels, I will be going to New Orleans in February for an art show at the Howlin Wolf.

I am excited to share my art with more of the world on a face to face basis. This will not only be my first art show outside of the midwest, it will also be my first time in New Orleans, so it'll be a win win.

If you are not in the New Orleans area, don't worry, I will be doing some live feeds from social media.

Opening Reception For featured artist Robin Monique Rios

May 05, 2017

Brookfield Public Library would like to welcome you to the opening reception for our featured artist, Robin Monique Rios.

Robin Monique Rios is a Chicago native and is the founder and director of 4Art Inc Gallery. Robin graduated with honors from the Illinois Institute of Art, Chicago, with a Bachelors degree of Fine Arts in Visual Communications in June 2003. While attending the Institute, she found her passion in photography. Using Photoshop like a painter uses canvas and a pallet of paint, Robin discovered the outlet through which she could be the most creative. She isn’t your typical digital artist. She’s a Digital Painter. One of Robin’s most notable body of works has been her “Observation Series” which she has been working on for nearly a decade: a thought provoking series which has been exhibited in many galleries and museums, solo and group shows. Robin’s work has been collected nationally and internationally. Robin challenges herself through her art, not only as a nature and architecture photographer/digital media but in her sculptural and mixed media work as well. She has never been afraid to delve into the unknown and strives to experiment and challenge her creative spirit. Robin is also concerned with the future of emerging artists and, through her gallery, she shares her experiences in assisting artists in their creative process and motivates them to become familiar with the business of art.
