BEHIND THE BRUSH
My name is Slade Roberts, a modern artist based in Dallas, Texas. Born in 1973, I grew up in Austin, Texas making my living in accounting before deciding to pursue art professionally. Leaving behind my corporate job, I dedicated myself full time to art. After creating a loyal following with my unique stylized pet portraits, I began to move into my passion for contemporary art.
Working from my studio near Dallas Texas, I work in a variety of mediums including, acrylic paintings, photography, and digital artwork. Though my work varies in subject and theme, the common thread is a Pop influenced contemporary graphic look. The majority of my works are clean and minimal; incorporating linear elements, geometric shapes, and high contrast colors.
Many pieces are titled using a play on words or with references to popular culture, Although I am very serious when creating, keeping a sense of humor along the way is important. Since trading in a briefcase for a paintbrush, my works and commissions are found in private collections across the US and internationally.
