Robert Bery is a New York City artist who works in painting, sculpture, and mixed media. Through his art, Bery promotes peaceful themes and has said "My intention is to reflect, challenge and inspire the viewer through color and image." In the wake of WWII, Robert Bery’s family emigrated from Romania to Israel when he was only six. There, as an adult, he served in the military as an electric technician, applying his highly accomplished engineering and technical skills to aviation communication systems and the production of Phantom jets
During an archaeological excavation in Israel, Bery discovered his passion for art. After a period of reflection, he decided to focus his talents to foster communication and unity among peoples, and art would be his vehicle. Following the Yom Kippur War, Bery devoted himself fully to his artistic pursuits, studying at the Ecole Des Beaux Arts in Paris and at the studios of Henry Moore and Jacques Lipshitz in Italy.
"Bery vs. the City of New York" - Bery sued the City of New York in 1993 to fight against a law forbidding artists from selling their work on the streets without a vending license. More info from WikipediaView Artist's Work
