Robert Minervini received a MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2009, and a BFA from the Tyler School of Art in 2005.
While practiced in various media, including sculpture and installation, Minervini considers himself in the first place a painter. He describes it an intersection of nature and culture. It is primarily influenced by 19th century landscape painting and contemporary urban culture.
His work exhibited nationwide, and his murals can be found in San Francisco and Philadelphia. He has been awarded numerous fellowships and featured in New American Painting SF Gate, and Art Matters Magazine, among others.
