Artist Profile: Robert Minervini
Robert Minervini Mural at Aldea Home + Baby
We are thrilled that Bay Area artist Robert Minervini is creating a new mural for Aldea Home + Baby at 890 Valencia Street, San Francisco. His playful jungle scene already enlivens our baby store at 1017 Valencia Street, and soon we will be able to enjoy his work at our main store. This week (May 26-30, 2015) he is up on a scaffold painting another “more adult” jungle scene with zebras, elephants, monkeys and tropical birds with a fantastic view of San Francisco in the distance.
Robert is known for his large scale acrylic paintings depicting utopian/distopian scenes of cities, freeways and flora. He was recently commissioned by the San Francisco Arts Commission to create a series of posters relating to local history. This series called "Invisible Reflections: A Narrative of Six Monuments” is currently on view on Market Street for one more week (more info).
Robert Minervini (b. 1981, Secaucus, New Jersey, USA) is an SFAI graduate and has had residencies at Bemis, Headlands and Root Division. His work has been exhibited nationally, including solo shows with Marine Contemporary, Electric Works, Eleanor Harwood Gallery, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, The Brooklyn Historical Society, and the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery.
