...BIOGRAPHY...

Robert SGARRA discovered painting at the age of 13. Self-taught, he was influenced by the great masters of painting.
It is difficult to portray this singular artist--without necessarily being reductive--since his work is so dense and imaginative.
This insatiable creative artist, at the same time sculptor, painter, plastic artist, has a great and accomplished skill
serving a flamboyant inspiration. Generous in his pictorial expression, imaginative in his sculptures, Sgarra can confuse
some purists since his creativity can be dazzling and unexpected as well as classic.

Wizard of material, unclassifiable painter? With Robert Sgarra, pop’s art and the fiery ‘Fauve’ colourist are cheerfully revisited in
inventive and daring works, sometimes monumental; he varies shapes and colours, according to his mood and humour,
always with the same passion that haunts him.

In the 90s, with collage and acrylic on stone, he created works and trophies for prominent people such as:
Zidane, Luis Fernandez, Viera, Baresi, Karpov, Pinna... he continued a few years later on other
media (metal, aluminium) under the influences of Pop Art and Street Art. As a perfect director, he is daring to the extreme with colours,
Robert Sgarra, painter with abundant creativity, gives us a rare alchemy creating indefinable emotional moments.

1999 : Grand prize and gold medal for a sculpture in San Remo

2005 : Sgarra produced a Cubist painting, the famous "chess game,” with both world champions, Karpov and Etienne Bacrot. The Palais des Festivals in Cannes will live for a week to the rhythm of the six games that ended with the presentation of the trophies, signed Robert Sgarra...

2006 : He met BB King in New York to give him a Cubist painting.

2009 : He will even create a new colour and paint range on the "bag-in-box", (kind of wine container) for the winemakers from Ardèche.

2012 : St Tropez celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Papagayo, part of the new scenery is signed Sgarra. Its façade with its two giant parrots, welcomes you with two meters fifty of metal. Inside, a 10m black and white Pop Art painting takes you around the stairs and wraps around the columns of the mythical club. Bardot and Barclay were immortalized by Sgarra, this adventure, will give birth to a great friendship, the king of St-Tropez nights, Franklin...with a Contemporary Art genius, Robert Sgarra.
