Lars-Erik Robinson became hooked on art ever since he was about 8 years old. Young Lars used to barrow his mothers baking sheets to copy his favorite comic book character. When he was done creating his work, he would just lay off to the side his bed and just criticizing or admire his creation; Lars knew from then on that being an artist is what he wanted to be when he grew up! Was born in Morristown, NJ USA in 1971 and when he was 8 years old moved to Sweden, and that is where he became involved in the early stages of Hip Hop and especially the Graffiti art. When he got in trouble in Sweden his mother decided it would be better for me to go and live with his Father in Tampa bay Florida USA, which he finally did in 1989.
I n his senior year at “Ringling College Of Art & Design” in Sarasota Fl. where he received is B.F.A in Illustration in 1994, a friend and mentor “Tim McKenna” introduced him to the world of Caricaturing by inviting him to go draw Caricatures with Tim at “Shells” seafood restaurant in Sarasota Florida, USA. When Lars graduated from Collage, other than Illustrating, creating murals, or designing logos; he started drawing portraits and caricatures at Leverock’s and Pier 60 on Clearwater Beach. That’s when Lars-Erik begun my freelance business of Murals, Illustration, an Entertainment provider, and Chef for Caterings.
Lars-Erik have now mastered how to merge my variety of artist talents with my out going and friendly entertainment attitude. Not just with the client in my seat, but also the crowds around me watching! And “Art-Tainment” is what I call that show! He has also been an International Society of Caricature artist (ISCA) Member since 1998. He continues to evolve in his Murals, Illustration, graphic design, and catering is another large aspect of my trade!
