Robert Savela
Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA


I specialize in music-related art, design and writing. Inspired by all types of (heavy) music, asemic art, psychedelic darkness, involuntary painting, philosophy, death and the psyche.

Analog to digital mixed-media 2021.

Everything is everything.

Entertainment, beauty and inspiration on shuffle.

Images instead of words instead of thought, makes you think of something else.

Beauty is the purpose, takes up space and time.
