Robert Atwell was born in 1973 in Nevada, Iowa. He has received both a BFA (1995) and MFA (2002) from Iowa State University.


Robert Atwell's work is created using a process that embraces both digital and analog sources. Beginning with a sketchbook, Atwell records spontaneously drawn marks inspired from experiences within visual and audio environments. He then draws and redraws, scans, digitizes, and prints these images, using them to build a visual dialog. Tradition and technology come together to create hybrid paintings, uniting the long tradition of abstract painting and the more recent advent of technological tools as art making devices. Final works come in the form of drawings, paintings, digital prints, and interactive installations. The day, month, year, and time become the titles of Atwell's work, marking another moment in history.
