Bob Arrigo is the archetype of what it means to be an artist. As a multi-talented artist on many levels, his life’s work has truly embodied the spirit of what that means.
A prolific fine artist and writer the author of four books, a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, as well as a published and award-winning graphic designer, Bob passionately embraces all that is to be discovered through the arts. His paintings can be found in private and corporate collections across Canada, the USA, the UK, and Russia. The subject of Bob’s art has an ever-expanding focus, though for many years his interest was solely dedicated to impressionistic landscapes, he has currently developed an intense interest in abstract work rendered both through intellectual composition and spontaneous application. His paintings express his evolution as an artist as they showcase his personal journey. All that has been accomplished and is now convergent, is currently evident with the passing on of his experience through two books written to encourage the talents and techniques of fledgling artists.
“The purpose of my art is to express the discovery, the beauty, and totality of my creative statement to the world, and to see it merge into the fabric of our culture as it reveals the expression of God’s gift to me.”
