BIOGRAPHY

 

Robert Greene has been represented by Robert Miller Gallery for over twenty-five years. He received his Bachelors of Industrial Design from Pratt Institute, and studied visual and performing arts at Syracuse University. Most recently the artist was commissioned by Chanel to produce site-specific works for their New York and Los Angeles stores as well as Chanel boutiques worldwide. In 1996, he was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Stedelijk Bureau Museum in Amsterdam. He was also included in the 1987 Whitney Biennial. Greene’s works are represented in numerous public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
