Mario Andres Robinson studied at the prestigious Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Beginning in 1994, Robinson’s work began to extensively incorporate rural subjects primarily located in Alabama.

The artist’s work fits squarely within the tradition of American painting. Robinson’s finished works bear a close affinity to the masters of the realist tradition, Andrew Wyeth and Thomas Eakins. Containing few references to modern life, Robinson’s work has a timeless and universal quality and exhibits a turn- of- the- century aesthetic. The images he chooses, which refer to a bygone era where solitude and reflection were abundant, also provoke frequent allusions to the paintings of Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper.

Each subject is very personal for the artist in both selection and execution. As the work progresses, his relationship with the sitter develops and a uniquely personal story begins to evolve. Robinson frequently depicts subjects framed within the context of their daily lives. The underlying narrative counters sentimentality and serves as the underpinning for his figurative images.
