Combining groundbreaking digital technology with photography, fine art and a keen imagination, Robert Silvers developed Photomosaic™, the innovative and timely idea of pointillism for the digital age. While likened to Chuck Close fragmented portraiture and the brilliant palette of George Seurat Photomosaics™ are exuberantly colored montages of tiny digital photographs that blend together to form a larger image of popular appeal.

Robert was born in 1968 and he lives and works in Marshfield, WI, U.S.A.
