Robert S. Levy
Award winning artist Robert S. Levy went to the High School of Industrial Arts where he majored in advertising design. After graduating, Bob applied to Cooper Union and won a scholarship.
He went to Cooper Union for five years at night while holding down a full-time job as an artist for a silkscreen display house. After graduating he headed for Madison Avenue, where he worked as an Art Director (for some of the biggest advertising agencies in New York) for the next 40 years.
Bob’s paintings have won many awards at the Firehouse Gallery and the National Art League. He has illustrated ten children’s books and four coloring books for Simon and Schuster. He has also worked as a background artist for many animated cartoons. His (golden)voice was used as the story teller in two animated cartoons.
Bob started working in Papier-Mache about 20 years ago. His Papier-Mache frames always get a lot of attention whenever his paintings are on display. Most people think they are made of wood. The frames are made from corrugated cardboard, newspaper and glue.
