Robert Stollar always had the desire to learn to draw. He taught himself the human anatomy and elements of drawing which naturally progressed to figurative sculptural work.
Between 2002 and 2008 alongside his artistic oeuvre he trained himself as a graphic designer, editor of commercials and motion graphics designer which allowed his journey though several advertising agencies. The figurative sculptural work connected with the digital world in exploring 3D animation. This naturally progressed to compositing as the next step in integrating the CG work with camera footage.
The 3D work and compositing skills culminated in film work. Between 2008 and 2011Robert worked as a VFX Artist and Senior Film Compositor on 13 feature films which included Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, Jane Campion’s Bright Star, Peter Weir’s The Way Back, Samson and Delilah, Animal Kingdom and Mao’s Last Dancer. The ability to pick up new skills fast has always been greatly helped by his knowledge of figure drawing. For the complete list of features and involvement, please visit IMDB.
In 2012 Robert returned to full time drawing and sculpting. His ability to carve stone allowed him to take part in restoration work on such iconic buildings as Sydney Town Hall.
