About Robin Antar
I was born in Atlantic City, NJ in 1957. I have been sculpting since 1974 when a high school teacher introduced me to stone carving.
My mission as a sculptor is to create a visual record of modern culture by capturing contemporary everyday objects in stone. By replicating the model on a life-scale along with marking and symbol details, I attempt to freeze the object in time as an artistic form of artifact. I achieve this high degree of realism through the use of such materials as parts of the real object, custom-made stains, paints, plastics and gold leaf.
My works have been exhibited in various shows and galleries, including Sothebys, NY; the National Art Club, NY; Nabisco Gallery, NJ; Fine Art Management Enterprises, Miami, FL; the City Museum of St. Louis, Mo., the Provincetown Art Museum, Provincetown, MA; the MGM Grand hotel, Las Vegas and others. Recent commissions include Dr. Marten Boots, England; Sketchers Boots USA; California and Chateau Haut-Brion wines, France as well as private collections. I have been featured in newspapers including the New York Post, Las Vegas Tribune and others, and magazines such as Fashion Manuscript, Art Business News and Sportswear International. I have also been awarded second place in the sculpture section of the Best of New York artist books and was awarded the Gold metal of honor by the Allied Artist of America in Sculpture and asked to become a full member. Broadcasts include Today in New York, Fox News in Las Vegas and 1010 Wins radio in NY. Memberships include Pen and Brush, NYC; National Association of Women Artists and the National Sculpture Society. ,
