I never thought I would paint another painting. I was sad, didn't want to pick up a brush. I glued some paper to the wood and wrote something. It doesn't matter what it said; It's long been painted over.

Obsessed with art and photography from the age of five, Robert Musser received a scholarship to Youngstown State University in 1993 from the Ohio Arts Council where he majored in Graphic Design and Marketing. While at YSU, he began to paint under the tutelage of Al Bright, Susan Russo, and Phil Chan. He fell in love with fast-drying acrylics and explosions of color that form the base of his paintings today.
Robert has worked as a professional designer and photographer for the last two decades. Always creating and exploring everything from making music, brewing beer, to Jiu Jitsu, the call of paint and canvas never left his thoughts. He prefers to work in acrylic still, but is excited to delve into in any medium.
Roberts' appreciation of artists such as, Gerhard Richter, Jean Dubuffet, and Joan Miró have led him to the shapes and layers that hold energy and movement in his works. He is a member of Cleveland Art League, Ohio Citizens for the Arts, The Cleveland Museum of Art.
Hello, Glad you could stop in! I was born and raised in New Waterford, a small village outside of Youngstown, Ohio and currently reside in North Royalton, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. I enjoy art on many different levels, playing drums, doing Jiu Jitsu, or just coloring with my daughters. I paint because I can channel any emotion into a piece and in the end, it leads to happiness. Is that not the point of all this craziness? I want Paint like a kid with no reference to the past or future and not care if it gets on my clothes or walls. I want to hang it on the wall and years later come back and find it stolen by someone who needed it to heal them.
