Robert Birkenes discovered the challenges and joy associated with painting and sketching as he grew up in Southern California. He has lived and pursued his advertising career in the Northeast, Midwest, Mexico and presently calls South Florida his home.

Robert is constantly impressed with the majesty and beauty of the American landscape. His landscape paintings reflect his impressions of the natural beauty that has been carved into our mountains, rivers and desserts. Recently, he has taken a very strong interest in creating abstract paintings. He calls this new series: Chromatic Vibrations. Based upon his photography of various sky / cloud and sun patterns at Sunset in Florida.

Capturing and preserving our historic architecture on canvas or paper has also been a motivating goal - born out of his reverence for these soon to vanish monuments of our past.

Many of his creations have found their place in private as well as corporate collections throughout North America. He has received numerous awards and recognition for his work in juried shows throughout the United States.

Mr. Birkenes received his B.F.A. Degree in Advertising & Design from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles / Pasadena, California. His advertising backgound includes creating TV & Print communications for: United Air Lines; Kellogg's Eggo Waffles and Special K Cereal; Kentucky Fried Chicken; Kraft Foods; General Motors de Mexico; Coca Cola - Mexico; Monsanto; Eli Lily; First National Bank of Chicago; Proctor & Gamble and a host of other Fortune 500 companies.
