I have been painting beach scenes from memory as a way to relax. The technique is challenging because I'm not using any mediums or extenders besides water. I never quite know what the painting will become, it just develops as I participate in the process. I like the way the paintings feel and I try to embody the feeling of what it was like to be there in the painting. The paintings don't have to be overly complicated or showy to be succesful paintings. I used to watch Bob Ross and William Alexander paint so I got some inspiration from those great artists
My name is Robert Nasatka and I am a NY artist living in the Hamptons. I am classically trained in Sculpture and Painting at Boston University, where I graduated Cum Laud, Fine Arts in 1997. I have been in over 50 exhibitions including @ American University, The Parrish Art Museum, Suffolk Community College, Fitchburg Art Museum, Tanglewood Institute, The Boy's Club, and many galleries. I was also runner up in Swatch Watches artist design series and a finalist in H&M's NYC Window Competition. I also have several pieces in Museum collections and have collaborated with famous artists and designers, including work shown in Hamptons Style and Instyle Magazines. .I don't make or market one specific type of work and some of my work is highly experimental and ephemeral and blurs the line between concept and reality. Since becoming a father I have been dedicating more time to market friendly and design based art and concepts as well as custom jewelry, but still like to paint and see what happens. Thank you for your interest.
