Artist of the moment…….Glass artist Rob Wynne


Rob Wynne is an American artist who works with mirrored and poured glass often and often uses typography and letters as a subject. Wynne was born in New York City in the year 1950.

Wynne attended the Pratt Institute located in New York City.

Wynne is part of many prestigious collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of Art both located in New York City.

Wynne is a master of the medium creating wonderful vessels and also his very unique typography works. My favorite works of the artist include typography. His own style of typography is a wonderful style that reminds me of urban art and street artists like the French artist Tilt.

Price range information: Works range from $2,000 to $24,000.

This Rob Wynne is a different artist than the Australian born Robert Wynne, who is also an accomplished glass artist.
