Robert A. McCann is a Midwest-based artist and educator. Born and raised in the Ozarks of southwest Missouri, he developed his studio practice through studies at Missouri State University, Indiana University, and as a Fulbright scholar based in Berlin, Germany.
McCann’s paintings have frequently dealt with the potential for metaphors in our byzantine mass media culture, and the overwriting of epic and intimate events in the particular artifice of painting. He has exhibited his artwork extensively around the United States, including solo exhibitions at prominent public venues that include Grand Rapids Art Museum, South Bend Museum of Art, the University of Kansas Art & Design Gallery, the University of Arkansas Galleries at Little Rock, and Artlink in Fort Wayne, IN. He has been a member of Amos Eno Gallery since 2015.
