Biography Robert Lostutter
Attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 1958-61 where he was influenced by John Rogers Cox, an academic painter who stressed traditional drawing and painting techniques. While there, he became associated with a group of artists known as the Chicago Imagists. This
group's work tended towards incredibly intricate, detailed, surreal images full of whimsy and psychological tension. Following a trip to Mexico in the 1970s, Lostutter began a project that would come to dominate his artistic production -- making drawings and paintings of strange hybrid bird-men with exotic, multicolored plumage fused into their faces and beaks and leaves growing from their bodies. Lives in Chicago.
