Over the holiday, I was commissioned to create a new website for my friend Rob Corley. Rob is an incredibly talented artist and musician - oh and doctor who most recently saved me from having a ruptured appendix. For the past fifteen years, he has been creating these amazing "paintings" from Mardi Gras beads. The works are vibrant with an iconic, graphic quality that have great texture, shine and depth that can only really be appreciated in person. All the work is created on a commission basis and generally is of a larger scale (24" x 36" ish). Personally, I have been contemplating for years what I want Rob to make me - maybe the state of Michigan or a portrait of the one and only Booker? - they are all just so good I can't decide! Below are just a few of my favorites but make sure to head over to his website to see more. Also Rob has been updating his portfolio almost daily with new and old works so make sure to keep checking back.
