I have know Robert Mars since my old NYC days (circa 1980s) in the hardcore/punk music scene. In recent years, we reconnected and I found out about his artwork that he has been producing. He takes bits of American icons, adds old newspaper/magazine ads and combines those with a back ground of an American flag or a quilt pattern to come up with each piece. These are usually very large works mounted on wood. Some of his more elaborate pieces have neon lighting installed.

I am amazed with each work and always look forward to the next. He is probably the most successful creative type I know as his work hangs in galleries around the country and in private homes and businesses. What I wouldn’t give for a print of his Deborah Harry piece, but these are one of a kind pieces of art. Hit the links and check out the masterworks!
