The powerful images of mixed-media artist Robert Sturman have a vivid presence that is both other-worldly and deeply rooted in the earthly wonders he has explored so adventurously in his global travels. A spiritual journeyer as well, Sturman is an intuitive creator whose works resonate with an inner vision as much as they reach out to embrace the viewer with tactile, richly hued physicality. The official visual artist of 2005s 47th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Sturman has formal training as a painter and photographer, and holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Santa Cruz. In listing qualities intrinsic to his work, Sturman has said it is about emotions for which I have no words, and that can be felt throughout his oeuvre. A native Southern Californian, Robert Sturman lives in Santa Monica.
