Robert Lebron - Artist Biography
Robert Lebron discovered his passion for art at an early age. After moving from New York to Puerto Rico he spent his early years with his fisherman cousin who told Lebron about the perils of the sea. Inspired by these tales, Lebron and his cousin would illustrate these stories on old paper bags. But it wasn’t until he returned to New York a few years later that his talent was recognized when he won admission to New York City’s prestigious high school for music and art.
His paintings continue to reflect his favorite theatrical and literary heroes. Many of the details in his paintings feature favorite characters from his childhood including a tiny dog (present in each painting) inspired by the comic strip, "Dickie Dare."
