Little Bobby Duncan is a muralist, painter, sculptor, printmaker and jewelry designer. After receiving his BA from Rice University and MFA in sculpture and printmaking from Washington University in St. Louis, Little Bobby has gone on to exhibit in a number of galleries and museums in Texas, Missouri, Vermont, California, and, of course, his home state, New Jersey.
A civic muralist, he's had commissions across the country and more recently completed "The Jamesburg Mural", a pictorial journey through the small town's history, installed in the Jamesburg Town Hall.
Little Bobby creates in a wide range of mediums. "The Temporary Abode of the Relics of the Elephant God" made from PVC pipe and sheet aluminum exhibited at Lincoln Center, toured with the Visual Arts League and is now on exhibit at the Jersey Shore Arts Center.
Beyond his works on traditional surfaces, Little Bobby has a huge collection of intricately detailed landscapes called "Amazing Feets" painted on shoes and clothing.
Children are drawn to Little Bobby's playful approach to art, and he serves as Artist in Residence often, more recently at the Wykoff School where he oversaw "Pipedreams", a wonderful multi-cultural project teaching kids to create art from PVC pipe. Because of his love for the craft, he loves to mentor upcoming artists. He's taught teens from local high schools by having them work side by side with him as he painted a 160 ft. mural on a bridge overlooking Lawrence Brook in Milltown, NJ.
Robert "Little Bobby" Duncan says he has as much fun with art now as he did when he was three and a half years old. His zest for his work can be summed up in the saying that seems to follow him wherever he goes...
"If it stands still long enough...Little Bobby will paint it!"
