ABOUT THE ARTIST: Rob Kaz ,following graduation from UCF, began working for a number of small animation studios. Because Disney had recently relocated their animation studios to California and left many animators in Central Florida who chose not to uproot, Rob found himself working" alongside, quite possibly, the most talented artists I've ever known right there in those small studios." Their influence was invaluable.
While at the studios, Rob had the opportunity to work in many areas of film. In particular, the time spent in character creation and environments heavily influenced his painting style.
For some time, Rob worked as a character artist for Electronic Arts (EA Tiburon) creating human likenesses in games such as Madden and NCAA football.
When Rob paints, he imagines places he'd rather be and he imagines friends along the way. Those two categories, Places I'd Rather Be and Friends Along the Way, occurred naturally as Rob began building a body of work. In most cases, his paintings easily fall into one or the other (and sometimes both).
When his last contract ended with EA, Rob took a leap of faith and began painting full time. Today, Rob's work is a mirror of his background in animation and video game art.
