The New York Artist Shop July Artist: Bob Boynton

The New York Artist Shop
Located in Historic Downtown St. Cloud
Is proud to host an Artist reception on:
July 19th from 5-9 

Featuring this month's Artist of the month.

Bob Boynton

        Bob is an emerging Florida artist with unique creative artwork.   His award winning work is a combination of photography and painting.   The photographic portions of his work are high-resolution digital giclees, printed on canvas in a six-color process.   Bob then extends the photograph by hand painting the frame in acrylic to complete the artwork.  This combination is a perfect marriage between photography and painting, allowing Bob to utilize his abilities and passions in this creative and unique art form. 
His interest in photography developed during High School where he was a yearbook photographer and worked part-time in a photographic studio.  He used his photographic knowledge to earn spending money during college.  While in South West Baptist University, Bob majored in Psychology and Art.  After graduation, he pursued a career as a Florist.  Bob came to Orlando in 1984 as a floral designer for Walt Disney World.  Bob is presently retired from Walt Disney World after 22 years of service as a decorator. 
Bob started painting this type of art form in 2002 using glossy enlargements of his photographs taken with his 35mm camera.  In 2004, he switched to digital photography.  Digital photography allows Bob to see immediate results of pictures taken.   Having changed to digital photography, he soon began to evaluate the process of changing his photographs from glossy to canvas.  He felt that the giclees provided a more artistic rendering of his photographs.  Bob's artwork is presently on display in two galleries in Florida, two galleries in Western North Carolina one gallery in Arkansas, and one gallery in Iowa.
While you are here to meet Bob and enjoy his artwork take a stroll around town and enjoy the other festivities taking place.
