Artist Statement:

“I paint to make ordinary scenes come alive,
using vivid colors and bold strokes to capture
stories that make you pause.
My goal is simple: evoke emotion.”

Artist Biography

Robert Fuerer, b. 1977

As a Swiss-born American artist,

fluent in Mandarin, and experienced in living and working in Asia and America, Fuerer brings a unique intercultural perspective to his art. His education at the State University of New York, School of Art + Design, at Purchase College, provided him with the ideal environment to cultivate his talents as a contemporary “flâneur” – a painter and observer of the urban and rural landscapes that surround him. Since earning a BFA in Oil Painting at SUNY in 2009, Fuerer has been sustaining both himself and his family through his art—a blessing for which he expresses gratitude to God each day.

Streets, Museums, and Masters

When Fuerer wasn’t out on the streets of New York City, painting en plein air, he could be found studying the works of the masters at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, honing his craft and refining his technique. His deep passion for art and his insatiable curiosity about the world led him to work at The Neuberger Museum of Art, where he had the privilege of collaborating with some of the most celebrated artists of our time, helping to install their groundbreaking exhibitions and learning from their vast knowledge and experience.

Recognition and Curation

Fuerer’s outstanding academic achievements were recognized when he received a full-ride scholarship for his best-in-showpiece, “George: Guardian of the Garbage,” and later graduated Summa cum laude. Fuerer’s remarkable talent and dedication to his craft have earned him widespread recognition. He was handpicked to curate and produce the SUNY “Alumni Cabaret Show” and the “Art is Dangerous show at the Neuberger Museum of Art,” showcasing his creative vision and his ability to bring together diverse artists and audiences.

Apprenticeships Across Asia

Fuerer’s pursuit of artistic excellence has led him beyond his formal education in New York to apprenticeships with renowned artists all over Asia. He apprenticed under celebrated classical sculptor Shei Dong Li in Pingtung, Taiwan, privately learned from master draftsman Zhang Jian Qiao in Beijing, and explored contemporary sculpture with Xu Zi Gui in Tainan. This diverse range of influences has contributed to Fuerer’s signature style, which combines Eastern design and space with Western depth and atmosphere.

Renowned artist and instructor Robert, with over 25 years of passion for painting and teaching, extends his expertise to personalized one-on-one classes. Founder of multiple successful art academies in Taiwan, he’s inspired over 1000 students for 21 years.

Robert Fuerer: Early Beginnings

Embarking on his artistic journey at age six, “Robby’s” mentorship under skilled instructors at workshops and the Peterson Art Center shaped a versatile skill set in acrylics, watercolor, pen and ink, pastels, and life drawing. Inspired by southern Utah’s landscapes, he connected nature and art early on, earning accolades for his award-winning drawing of “Indian Vase”. Excelling through middle school and high school, Fuerer’s talent garnered recognition even at the college level. His dedication extended to ceramics, with his teacher entrusting him with keys for late-night and weekend sessions. Fuerer transitioned to the role of “Mission Artist” in Taipei Taiwan at age 19. Two years later he was Learning Design and figure drawing at SLCC where he graduated with an Associate of Applied Science with a major in Visual Arts.

Born in Zurich, Switzerland, and nurtured in the captivating embrace of the Wasatch Mountains, my artistic journey unfolded effortlessly. At the tender age of 15, I embraced the magic of oils, capturing the majestic Matterhorn on canvas. A pivotal moment occurred while painting Plein Air in Taiwan, surrounded by mountains – a life-changing experience that fueled my dedication to specialize in landscape painting.

Armed with a BFA, my artistic odyssey has taken me to over 15 states and 16 countries, tirelessly mastering diverse scenes across the globe. Now, having returned to the heart of Utah, I am thrilled to immerse myself once again in the awe-inspiring landscapes of my home state, infusing my work with the spirit of this breathtaking terrain.
