"Thurman's paintings meander between odd, eerie and intentionally rudimentary – but those are also the pillars of their charm. The images – some political, some depraved – all elicit an internal feeling of discomfort, which is the sign of good work." -Jacob Uitti
Robert R. Thurman is an artist, musician and poet, born and raised in a rural community in East Tennessee. After a health crisis, instead of focusing on things he could not do, he threw himself into his passion and refuge - art and music. Initially having few resources, he used supplies that were on hand or could be scavenged for his paintings such as plant dyes, shoe polish, house paint and markers. His art is now exhibited throughout the world.
