About

The "Towards The Sun" is a unique mixed media piece on wood panel, created by Robert Mars in 2019. A brilliant layered collage of mixed media news clippings, nostalgic imagery and classic americana motif embodies the work of Mars. "Towards The Sun" is in the shape of the classic vintage Chanel No.5 perfume bottle with carved three-dimensional polkadots and is coated with a glossy resin finish. Mars takes inspiration for his pieces from quilting patterns, a subtle nod to his fascination with folk culture of the 1950s. The artwork showcases signature imagery and printed phrases chosen by the artist to give visual and charismatic appeal that speaks to past and present simultaneously. The gold highlight accents paired with layers of varying shades of bright fuchsia make ‘Towards the Sun’ a truly vibrant piece of contemporary pop art. Signed and dated by the Artist on the lower right side. "Towards the Sun" comes with the Arton seal of approval for authenticity, quality, and exquisite condition. Questions on this piece? Send us a note or call us directly, we'd love to talk with you! Robert Mars, born in 1969, is an American contemporary visual artist working in the mediums of neon, resin, and collage. He has forged a distinct genre of folk-laced pop art, successfully merging the iconic American pop art aesthetics with traditional folk art designs. A graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York, Mars has built a career on his unyielding interest in pop-culture icons, traditional quilting techniques, and the classic ‘Americana’. Images of celebrities such as Elvis, Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Sofia Loren and Marilyn Monroe are pasted over quilt-like patterns created with layers of vintage magazine clippings and finished with a glistening UV resin coating. His artworks exude a bright, lively energy that playfully reminds his viewers of the brilliance of America’s past and ignites hope for the future. The relationship between celebrity, tradition, and consumerism is an on-going exploration throughout Mars’ work; a relationship that still defines main-stream American culture today. Robert Mars currently works from his studio in Connecticut where his unique artworks take shape with layers of history, vivid color and glossy finishes all crafted by hand. Mars’ work is most similar to Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana, however, his unique artistic identity stands confidently in it’s own category that will be revered for generations.
