ROBERT HANSEN

INDIE DESIGNER + THINKER + DREAMER + CREATOR + INNOVATOR

Robert was born in New York City, raised on the shores of Jersey and currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. He attended the School of Visual Arts in the lower eastside of New York where he studied Graphic Design.

His love for visual art led him to a 16-year career in retail as a Visual Merchandiser for Nordstrom, Macy’s Herald Square and Hickey Freeman Suits on 5th Avenue. Having won several awards for Visual Presentation, he set his sights on another design heavy industry, special events. Robert worked production on high-profile events as NIKE World Basketball with mentor Damon Haley and weddings for clients like Usher with mentor Diann Valentine.

He also served as Art Director for several regional television commercials; as well as an award-winning Production Designer for a short film. He was encouraged by his mother to go back to basics and develop his love of fine art. Her death in 2021 resonated with him and reignited his passion to create art that makes one take a closer look, literally. In a short time, he has caught the attention of celebrities and TV Networks.
