Robert Bissell Bears
Description20 notecards When Robert Bissell isnt painting bears, he paints rabbits, butterflies, rats, kangaroos, dragonflies, and a host of other animals. His paintings are large, dreamy, playful, allegorical meditations on the experiences of these animals and, by extension, of human animals. Bissell followed a circuitous route to painting. After a childhood on an English farm, he studied photography in London, moved to America, spent a decade working for a specialty retail company, started his own catalog company, then chucked it to make art. He now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and is represented by galleries in California, Hawaii, Virginia, Oregon, and Montana.
