Robert Mars’ artwork chronicles an evolving fascination with the Golden Age of American popular culture and celebrates the icons of the 1950’s and 1960’s. His paintings evoke a vintage quality of design and pay homage to the idealized age of growth and hopefulness that was prevalent in the USA at the end of the Depression. At a time before the internet and mobile technology, where information was not instantly available to millions and there was no such thing as instant internet celebrities, Mars pays tribute to the people who lived as myths with unique, untouchable and unforgettable personalities.
