Social / Political Artist Robert Steel (not to be mistaken with Robert Steele Gallery) can be found selling his illustration works every Saturday in Williamsburg. I found Robert on Bedford Avenue between North 4th & North 5th Streets.
Robert has been selling his artwork part-time in locations like Union Square and Bushwick for about 4 to 5 years. He recently moved to Bedford Avenue from Union Square saying he prefers the people and laid back vibe here in Williamsburg.
He describes himself as an Illustration Artist who works from the heart and not a commercial Illustrator, so he feels best expressing his Social Political views through his work. He likes to reveal the contrast between Power and Poverty. Explaining there’s a flipside to Power and Wealth not often realized. Avoiding color, he sees his Illustrations being more powerful in Black and White.
