About Robert E Messick

Robert Messick was trained in the traditional techniques of drawing, painting and photography at the Art Institute of Chicago.

While working as a graphic artist in St. Louis I experimented with screen printing, works of oil on paper and illustration.

Retiring in 2004 he is currently working in digital media creating conceptual art pieces in photoshop and with sculpture using 3-D digital printing cast in bronze.

“Digital media offers exciting tools to manipulate
photographic images and allows the user to explore digital brush and layer effects not possible with traditional materials.”
