Artist Statement

I turned to oil painting, which was something that always excited me, and in so doing achieved a long sought after dream.  My focus has been in large abstract color-field painting with an emphasis on the mixing of various textures as well as the use of a broad and exciting color palette.


Robert Dennis Engel graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, California. (Today, Chouinard is the art school within The California Institute of the Arts). He spent the next twenty-five years as an award winning Art Director, Producer and Creative Director in advertising, working in both New York City and Chicago. Three Clio's, three Venice Film Festival Lions and the New York Art Directors Club Gold and Silver Medals are some of his many awards. Robert was also honored to be in the inaugural issue of "Who's Who in American Advertising". Despite his many accomplishments, he left advertising to fulfill a great desire to transition from commercial art to fine art.
