Description

Robert Deyber (born August 1955 in Greenwich, Connecticut) is an American artist best known for literal visual portrayals of cliches, euphemisms, and idioms from the English and other languages. The San Francisco Examiner in 2009 described him as a "pop surrealist" whose style "has appeal for new as well as experienced collectors."[1]

His work relates to that of Thomas Cole and Frederic Church of the Hudson River School, surrealists like Salvador Dalí and René Magritte, naive painter Henri Rousseau, the colorists Henri Matisse and Marc Chagall, and Andy Warhol.

Deyber paints his own scenes from the prose that peppers the English lexicon. His works range from literal translations of fanciful sayings to kitschy depictions of everyday terminology.ed in

 

Born and raised in Greenwich, Connecticut, Deyber began drawing at an early age. His mother was a well known traditional portrait artist working in New York City in the 60’s. This inspired him to use art as necessary means of escape from an otherwise difficult world, one in which he set his mind free to visit the most remote places—a wheat field in South Dakota, the dunes of the Gobi desert, the moons of Jupiter—all within easy reach for a very imaginative young boy. He is endlessly intrigued by visual imaginings that reside in the realm between reality and fantasy. His artwork is highly narrative in nature; his paintings convey an almost dreamlike quality to the bemused viewer.
