My name is Bob Slingland. I was born and raised in Totowa, New Jersey. When I was growing up, the high school I went to offered art classes in which I participated. I really enjoyed doing hard edge graphic design paintings. During that time I sold quite a few paintings. Unfortunately, in my senior year my father passed away so I was unable to go to college to further my art education. I got a full-time job to help my mom out.
Six years after I graduated high school I got married and had two beautiful daughters which put my art work off to the side. Eight years later I decided to move to Florida with my family. I worked hard at my job and taking care of my family for the next 15 years. Art was just a distant memory during that time.
Eventually the company I had worked for, for 22 years closed their doors. So, after a month of looking for a job, with no success, my current wife encouraged me to start painting again. After doing a few paintings I found out there were customers out there that liked my kind of art work. A friend came over to our house and saw my work that was hanging on our wall and bought a painting that day. My wife took one to work and hung it near her desk and had a lot of positive comments on it.
With that kind of encouragement, I decided to try and get into the local art gallery. In 2012 I got accepted into the GOLA Gallery in Flagler Beach. During the past three years I have sold many paintings and met some really creative people. My fellow artists have encouraged me to try to find other avenues to get my work out to a larger audience.
In 2018 I joined the Flagler Art Association. In my first month there was an art show in which I entered two paintings and I received an honorable mention for one of them.
Hard edge graphic design painting is designs of straight lines with no paint seepage. My work can have a very wide variety of bold colors to just black and white so it is a full range of variety for the art lover. I paint a wide range of designs from simple to complex angles and styles.
I am enjoying using my creative side and giving people pleasure with my paintings.
