This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was submitted by the artist July 2004:

Mario A. Robinson was born in Altus, Oklahoma and lived there until the age of twelve. After relocating to New Jersey with his family, Robinson's talent was discovered by a fifth grade teacher and sparked a creative explosion in the pre-teen that would lead him to the prestigious classrooms of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. While at Pratt, Robinson was introduced to the medium of pastel by a fellow student and was immediately drawn to the brilliancy and range of the medium.

The work of Mario A. Robinson fits within the tradition of American painting. His completed works are reminiscent of the masters of the realist tradition, Andrew Wyeth and Thomas Eakins.  The images he chooses, refer to a bygone era where solitude and reflection were abundant.

Beginning in 1994, Robinson's work began to extensively incorporate rural subjects primarily located in the state of Alabama. Each subject is very personal for the artist, both in selection and execution. As the work progresses, his relationship with the sitter develops and a uniquely personal story begins to evolve. Robinson frequently depicts his subjects framed within the context of their daily lives. The underlying narrative counters sentimentality and serves as the emotional underpinning for his figurative works.

While several styles have influenced Robinson, the artist has created a style which is unique unto itself. He is capable of exceptional proficiency, which he uses to convey his vision of people and places in his immediate world, and the rural venues he chooses to depict.


Biography from Morton Fine Art:
Mario Andres Robinson:  Portraits In the American Tradition

Mario Andres Robinson was born in Altus, Oklahoma, where he resided with his family before relocating to New Jersey at the age of twelve.  A fifth grade teacher discovered his artistic gift and a creative explosion was sparked in the pre-teen. Robinson studied at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York.

Early in his development, Mario began looking to the great masters for inspiration and technical insight.  An avid student of realism, he studied the elemental principles of painting by exploring the work and technique of Old Masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer and Degas.  However, it was the work of 19th and 20th century American artists that provided Robinson with the strongest stylistic foundation, helping him forge and define his own sensibility.

The work of Mario Andres Robinson fits squarely within the tradition of American painting.  Robinson’s finished works reflect his interest in the masters of the realist tradition, Andrew Wyeth and Thomas Eakins.  Containing few references to modern life, Robinson’s work is intended to have a timeless and universal quality, and exhibit a distinct turn-of-the-century stylistic aesthetic. The images he chooses, which refer to a bygone era where solitude and reflection were abundant, also are intended to provoke allusions to the paintings of Winslow Homer and Edward Hopper.

Beginning in 1994, Robinson’s work began to extensively incorporate rural subjects primarily located in Alabama.  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.

While a confluence of styles has exerted varying degrees of influence over Robinson, the artist’s individuality continually asserts itself.  He strives for technical proficiency, which he uses to convey his vision of people and places in his immediate world, and the rural venues he chooses to depict.

Robinson is an Exhibiting Artist Member (EAM) of The National Arts Club and a signature Member of The Pastel Society of America.  In 2009, he was chosen to represent Winsor & Newton products as a featured artist. His work has been featured several times in The Artist’s Magazine, The Pastel Journal, Watercolor Magazine and several others. In the February issue of The Artist’s Magazine, Mario was selected as one of the top realists under the age of 40.
