Visual Art: Painter; Visual Art: Photographer; Writer: Author
Robert Neff is an accomplished photographer, contemporary artist and writer. His approach and style are dynamic and create an energy that engages the senses. His work encompasses art and design. This is “Art with a story; Art with a vision.”
In 2007, his focus shifted from photography and writing to contemporary art. For the next two years his efforts produced cutting edge studies in art design.
The basis for his early work was a combination of his fascination with nature’s geometric patterns and technical studies. However, he has moved beyond this structured approach to step outside these boundaries. The result is a new approach in contemporary art, called Kaleidoscopography. The early work generated a genre he calls Transformations. These designs are well suited for fashion and interior design, but can stand on their own. However, he reached beyond these boundaries to create two intense and dynamic collections, Palm Seed Pod Collection and the Zurich Collection.
His work can be found in private homes in Highland Park (Dallas), Chicago, Laguna Beach and Georgetown. In 2005, he copyrighted his first poetry book. He has several manuscripts ready for final edit. He has been a guest blogger to political, sports and art blogs. He continues to write. An Ohio native, he has been influenced by his family’s Appalachian roots, travels and where he has lived – North Carolina, Washington DC, Dallas, and Laguna Beach. Since 2007, he has resided in St Petersburg, Florida. Since 1997, Robert Neff has been involved in ecommerce technical and marketing operations. He has been responsible for building several successful ecommerce businesses at the U.S. Mint and Fortune 100 companies as well as smaller businesses.
An innovator, he has volunteered his time to increase St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay Area’s social media presence using Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare. He assembled a team to support the Social Media efforts for the Honda Grand Prix St Petersburg, which exceeded expectations. Currently, he is working with the Dali Museum to plan a ‘Social Media Night at the Dali Museum’. His undergraduate degree is in Professional Aeronautics, cum laude from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. He earned an MBA from Campbell University. While living in Washington D.C., he had studied contract management at the University of Virginia. 4 June 2011
