Self-Taught Art

Robyn Beverland

Robyn "The Beaver" Beverland began painting when his father gave him art supplies for therapeutic value, as he was born with a rare genetic disorder. Family portraits, angels, roosters and dogs were among Beverland's favorite subjects. They're presented without context, without even a horizon, conventional perspective or traditional pictorial structure. This leant an immediacy and clarity to The Beaver's paintings.
