Bob Clyatt has been formally involved with creative arts from an early age. As a teen in California his interest in narrative figurative photography moved him to create fine art prints and to be taken on as a rare private pupil under noted western photographer Challiss Gore. Using a darkroom he built, Bob had several of his works accepted in Photographic Society of America juried exhibitions. During the following years, Bob focused on philosophy, raising a family and growing businesses, founding a prominent New York City digital design firm which employed 30 designers and was sold to a public company in 1998. Bob returned to creating fine arts shortly thereafter with an intensive study of sculpture under several teachers in the figurative sculpture tradition, including Michael Keropian, Anthony Antonios, Sarah Coble, Andrew Cawrse. Barney Hodes and Richard MacDonald. Bob's formal sculpture education was centered on his years of studio and coursework at the National Academy and the Art Student's League of New York. Bob has received numerous private commissions and awards for portraits and figurative sculpture. His work is included in the collections of both private collectors and organizations, and is sold internationally.
