Artist Statement

REBECCA ROBINSON

 “As long as I can remember art has moved me. Expressing myself with my artwork allows me to convey a thought, an emotion, a personal experience or an important message. As an artist, it is my duty to push the envelope and create artwork that sparks a dialog and remains timeless.” – Rebecca Robinson
 

Rebecca studied fashion design in Atlanta, GA, and continued her education at North Carolina Central University where she majored in Art/Visual Communications and graduated with high honors. Her background also includes art history, printmaking, photography, graphic design, film and creative marketing. Rebecca is mostly known for her fashion design company psnob.com (pronounced ‘snob’) that launched in 2001.


In the spring of 2019, she began the initial stages of forming her nonprofit organization called “ONE ARRT,” which will become the first black owned art supply brand that specifically supports all artists, art organizations, art education, museums/galleries and communities in need who would prosper with proper funding and resources. Rebecca also has contributed towards several nonprofit organizations throughout the country by auctioning her one-of-a-kind handbags and fine art. Her artwork has been featured in dozens of media outlets including; Indianapolis Business Journal Podcast, WFYI, NUVO, Jezebel Magazine Atlanta, Pattern Magazine, Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis Recorder, New York Examiner, WTHR 13, WISH TV 8, RTV 6, FOX 59, Creative Mornings Indianapolis, Indianapolis Monthly Magazine, The National Endowment Of The Arts and recently exhibited her painting made with the medium concrete and tar of jazz legend, Miles Davis, at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry.


In the summer of 2019, Rebecca was selected by the Arts Council of Indianapolis to showcase her work for the annual High Art Billboard project (2019-2020).  She also is a self-published author of the book Arts Honor: An Inspirational Dictionary Especially for Artists And Creatives. In 2018, the award-winning documentary film The Color of Medicine: The Story of Homer G. Phillips Hospital was released in which she worked as a co-producer and media manager. In honor of the historic documentary film, Rebecca and her production team received an official scroll from Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas from the county of Los Angeles for their contribution to preserving an important part of history and giving back to the community of St. Louis and beyond.
