About Rob Rey

Through its countless mythological traditions, humanity has proven to have a deep-seated need for awe-inspiring stories and the experience of wonder. With a powerful resonance, these mythological stories provide a framework for understanding where we fit in our communities, and in our cosmos. They can also give a us a feeling of shared connection and participation with the rest of humanity, helping us to show our more caring and compassionate side. Unfortunately, the most popular stories being passed on today come from traditions developed in very different times. These antiquated stories inevitably come prepackaged with inseparable cultural baggage and outdated ideas that are, sadly, ill-suited for the equality, understanding, and change that our modern culture so desperately needs. What are the resonant, and positive, awe-inspiring stories of today? How can our expanding scientific knowledge drive our enchantment with the natural world and grow our empathic interests toward our fellow humans? Exploring these questions visually, Rob hopes to promote or create the stories that best help us to achieve these goals.

Originally from a suburb north of Chicago, Rob studied Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. He received the “Best in Show” award in the National Oil & Acrylic Painters' Society's 2013 annual Best of America exhibition, as well as a Gold award in Spectrum 23, and a First Place award in IBA 4. His work has also been chosen as finalists in five recent Art renewal Center Salons.
