Robert SILVERS

Biographie

Ingeniously breaching the gap between art and science, Robert Silvers’ ubiquitous photomosaics portray familiar images throughout history and contemporary culture, either portraits of well-known personalities, world currency or fascinating renditions of masterpiece paintings.

Silvers invented his craft while still a student at MIT. His intricate works offer a unique optical perspective and have gained world wide acclaim as part of famous art collections such as: AXA Courtage, Coca-Cola, CNN, Disney, Fortune Magazine, IBM, Lucasfilm Ltd., MasterCard International, National Geographic, and Newsweek. His upcoming projects include a 2007 retrospective exhibition at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C.. Robert Silvers resides outside Boston, Massachusetts.
