Practicing the art of American Realism Bell’s paintings combine wildflowers from the meadow behind the painter’s studio with simple, meaningful and historic objects.  “These paintings bring it all together,’ the artist once said, “objects I love to paint, scale, weight, lights and darks,…wildflowers with a bit of refinement. Paintings, I hope, with a quiet presence.”

Robbie Bell, a native of Greenville, and was a standout athlete at Greenville High School and a graduate of the University of South Carolina and Georgia State University. He began his creative career working as a project coordinator for John S. Frey Porcelain, fabricating panels for Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. He held several creative positions, including Senior Art Director for DMB&B, Walker Studios, and later taught art in the Greenville County School District. Bell donated much of his work to organizations including Camp Greenville, First Baptist Church and Surgeons for Sight.
