|About Me/My Art:
Robert Burridge was an Industrial Designer. After 25 years in the business, he left the corporate world to be a full time, contemporary painter. Today his paintings are sold in galleries worldwide, including San Francisco, Raleigh, Sedona, Hawaii, Australia and on Cruise Ships. Burridge is a national juror for many art organizations, as well as a college and national workshop instructor. He is the honorary President of the International Society of Acrylic Painters and Signature Member of both the Philadelphia Watercolor Society and ISAP. His honors include the prestigious Franklin Mint award and the Crest Medal for Achievement in the Arts, previously awarded to Picasso, John Singer Sargent and Georgia Oâ€™Keeffe.
Burridgeâ€™s work is praised as â€œHappy, powerful, humorous and just a little tweaked!â€ Art critics claim Burridgeâ€™s works â€œmasterly done,â€ cheerful and original.
Burridge says â€œart should be an uplifting experience for both the painter and the art buyer. Itâ€™s one of the luxurious examples celebrating artistic talent and all that is wonderful about life, and especially its quirkiness.â€
Burridgeâ€™s country studio is located on Californiaâ€™s central coast in San Luis Obispo County.
