Pittsburgh artist Bob Freyer paints images that seem to be from an alternate world – a world where try to preserve the memories that they once knew, a world where the youth gets to act their age and doesn’t spend all their time in front of technology. The bold images of characters show that there is a darker lining in his mind that takes him back to his childhood as he adds personal feeling to each painting. When he puts the paint brush down you will immediately reflection to his past as child, and feel the memories he is reflecting on. Working in multiple mediums and in a style that is considered “urban” contemporary , there’s a welcoming feeling that you get from his work.
Mr. Freyer who is also known as Durty, has been displaying his work throughout his hometown city, and other cities throughout the US . Between everyday life and music his inspiration seems to never end. He challenges himself by adding different mediums to his work, and trying new things. He isn’t an artist that paints for the people, he paints for himself. He uses art as an escape.
