Pachek (aka Robert Gividen) — Photo-realistic Artist, Author, Composer/Musician
Born in Utah in 1940, he always knew, even as a child, that art would play a major role in his life. His love of travel, exploration, and studying all forms of art has been the basis behind his work. He is a published author, musician and artist.
He exemplifies his use of abstract form and gestures with detailed realism as a means of communicating emotion and thought while using detailed and vivid colors to personify his style. He strongly believes that all meaning is conveyed through our languaged reality!
After graduating, he spent over 10 years, traveling and studying throughout Europe and Asia. As a self-taught artist, he continues to explore all uses of various medium (Oil, Water Soluble Oil, Acrylic, Pen and Ink, Pastels, and Digital) as used by artists around the world.
One of his most productive period came in 1992-3 when he published another book with Prentice Hall while producing over 135 painting ranging from abstract/surrealism, to realism.
He is currently working on another book (soon to be published) titled “Empowering Your Life — The Drama Hypothesis” while continuing to produce his art.
It should be known that over the past 50 years he has published all of his art and music using his real father’s last name of Pachek.
