Featured Artist - Robert Jiménez
Robert’s imagination and desire to draw were first fueled by his frequent visits to the corner newsstand in his Brooklyn neighborhood to purchase comic books, especially those that featured the art of Neal Adams, George Perez, and Jim Aparo. Later, the films seen on local TV, everything from the comedies of Abbott & Costello and The Marx Brothers, B Monster movies, and especially the Planet of the Apes series, left a definite imprint in his work. More recently, an interest in Tiki and Pulp Art have been added to the mix. Incorporating an ever-growing cast of Apes, Tikis, and appearances from the likes of Doc Savage, Tarzan, The Shadow, and more. He is creating a unique narrative through his paintings and sculptures.
Robert’s work has appeared on album covers, in publications such as Tiki Magazine and Pinstriping & Kustom Graphics Magazine, and has shown in galleries including Disney’s Wonderground, Harold Golen, M Modern, Creature Features, and Bear & Bird among others.
Robert also does work for Topps, Cryptozoic, and Upper Deck on licenses such as Mars Attacks, Star Wars, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Adventure Time and more.
