Respected as a true rebel in the art world, Hawkins had no formal art education aside from 50 years of self-taught painting experience. His natural gift for manual dexterity and hyperactive imaginative and visualization skills carried him through the heady NYC art world of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and led him to London, where he currently resides. Due to his limited proper training, his style can be called “pseudo-realism”, as it imitates technique and other academic precision, like proportion and anatomy, lending an askew aspect to a generally surreal picture narrative.

Rene Ricard, an artist and poet, once said, “You cannot name one painter of his generation comparison with whom Basquiat would not find laughable. The exception would be Robert Hawkins, whose work Jean admired and collected.”
