Robb Scott Artwww.ArtPal.com/robbscott
Canadian artist Robb Scott, was born in Truro, Nova Scotia. He bought a ticket on an "art career roller coaster" in October, 2001. In the beginning the ride was as advertised; bumpy! But he worked hard to make a name for himself by selling his art door to door, on street corners where crowds gathered, and to thousands of tourists on the bustling Halifax waterfront every summer. Each experience brought highs and lows. But it never dampened his deisre to keep pushing forward.
In 2010, his hard work and risk taking was rewarded. He collaborated with NHL superstar Sidney Crosby, which catapulted his profile onto a national stage, and made him the first Canadian artist ever authorized to work with Sid the Kid. The attention that followed attracted other sports stars such as Michael Jordan, Bobby Orr, Nathan MacKinnon and Carey Price.
Robb has deep passion for creativity and design. His meticulously detailed drawings can take more than 300 hours to complete. The time and effort dedicated to each drawing is a testament to his drive and perseverance. But what truly sets his art apart is the creative design behind each image. No two drawings look the same. Each design is unique in it's own way. Robb can spend a month (or more) just designing the layout for each new artwork.
Robb Scott's goal is to become one of the most recognized artists in North America. He dreams of collaborating with other sports icons, but also with musicians, celebrities and other important figures of the world. But none of this will be possible without the continued support of his wife, children and family. He owes everything to them.
