ARTIST’S BIOGRAPHY

Arthur Robins was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953. He began painting, sculpting and drawing at the age of two and a half.

He attended art schools throughout his childhood, receiving many awards and scholarships. After attending Pratt Institute, he supported his art through woodworking, including cabinetry and furniture making, while showing in galleries and public spaces.

Arthur has shown his art on the sidewalks of New York City, as well as major Art Galleries and Museums. He has lived exclusively off the sale of his art since 1987. In 1993 he was a founding member of A.R.T.I.S.T., a group that successfully litigated a Federal landmark case extending the First Amendment right of free speech to artists and fine art. He has sold original works of art to collectors from every state and over fifty countries around the world. He is also known as a fine furniture maker. Arthur’s Art has been aquired by the METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART as well as THE MUSEUM OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK.
