“ Plante is a Creative Beast "
(Richard Hatters, Creative Director / Owner of
Hired Guns Creative)
Robert started drawing nine months before he was born and just never stopped! He is one of those typical creative roller coasters. Skilled, fast and conceptual till the xtreme. He thinks, acts and fantasizes like a maniac. Even when he owned his own advertising- and design company; or became a sophisticated art director, wearing Armani suits and Hugo Boss shirts: he never renounced his inner source... He kept creating like a serial killer.
He secretly drew a French Citroen 2CV on BMW's shiny executive washroom tiles; sketched Lady Godiva on brand knew annual reports during boreroom meetings or painted provocative anti-war graphics on the helmets of his fellow military musicians... All for Art sake, the sake of fun and the joy of having cash. Lots of his napkin designs got framed!
Robert’s work literally pops up everywhere... On buildings, in bedrooms, on arms of people. Until this day his cartoons and illustrations are highly appreciated, especially because of the adaptability of them. Robert’s work is simply too usable. He fears no subject, no technique, no purpose. And he cherishes honest critique as a divine blessing, because it makes him stronger, faster, better than before. Even though he's still not a million Dollar man...
Robert even has his own art label and image bank, which he runs together with his wife and sons. check it out: Balbina Studio.
