About the Artist Facilitator

Military Veteran and Engineer turned artist; Robert Gray brings a fresh eye to photography with a raw intimacy that captures the human spirit. Robert’s love of the arts, creativity and adventure led him to photography back in 2008 while he was in Egypt. This was the beginning of his journey to master the art of storytelling. Robert’s dynamic style of storytelling guides the viewers’ imagination to run rampant with their own creativity, while simultaneously reaching them on an emotional level.

Robert loves to experiment with his art. Although his portfolio is vast in its diversity, his main focus is helping people work through their past traumas through the creation of tableaux. Street photography is also a huge influence in most of his artistic storytelling. He has been known to use whatever medium necessary to tell his story.

Robert’s passion for helping people has led him to work with various mental health groups throughout Colorado. Anywhere from teaching photography and workshops to public speaking at Events and Symposiums.

Robert has received several awards including Top 100 Best New Photographers of 2015, 27 features in Fine Art America as well as numerous guest appearances in art galleries, magazines and international art catalogues.
