Robert P. McGraw
Robert P. McGraw has studied art his entire life. Born in Dallas, he attended Trinity Christian Academy and received his degree in advertising from Southern Methodist University. Creation, destruction, manipulation and rebirth best describes his method. Each piece goes through an extensive process which frequently consist of almost equal quantities of destruction as creation. The layers are applied and then subsequently removed leaving sometimes only a trace of their existence. Objects have meaning and represent more than just an image. McGraw interprets his personal experiences into visual form, and uses the layering of patterns and mediums to develop depth in his artistic “perspective”.
