Meet Clifford Robinson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Clifford Robinson.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
I am a creative in the truest sense of the word. I started exploring more of this once I got to college. My friends and I made small videos for our own amusement which turned into me being behind the camera of my iPhone a lot more. In school, I learned about design due to the fact that I was majoring in architecture. More and more as time went by, I found myself leaning to photography. It was something about taking photos of my friends, the activities we did, and the random scenes I encountered that struck a cord in me. From iPhone to shitty digital point and shoot to shitty fake DSLR to film camera to shitty DSLR to real decent DSLR, that journey was now being given the time and respect it deserved.

Please tell us about your art.
I am a designer, photographer, videographer, graphic designer, creative director, and all around resplendent human being striving to become a licensed architect. Many hats lol. I aim to separate myself from other people when it comes to photography by treating it as art instead of commercial work. Many of the photos reflect my professional background of architecture because that is where my eye lived for four years of my development in the creative field. The rest consists of many candid moments which I love the most. The one thing I love about them is they are some of the most honest and truthful moments in humanity. One thing I have learned growing up when it comes to imaging, imagery, and visualization, is a lot of it can be falsified or skew perception has something I tend to stray away from. When I take photos, especially of people, I try to get them to be as natural calm and honest as possible. I hope that when people see my photography, it creates a feeling in them; good or bad. I want to evoke emotion. The best art, most of my favorite, creates a feeling of emotion when you take it in.

What do you think about the conditions for artists today? Has life become easier or harder for artists in recent years? What can cities like ours do to encourage and help art and artists thrive?
With this handy dandy invention called…the internet, so much positive has begun to grow for artists today. With all that good the balance of bad has come with it as well. The gift of a platform, a voice, and space for people to receive exposure and notoriety is an amazing opportunity to be given. The downside to that is swimming in the over-saturated pool of “everyone” else that wants the same, which can always go one or two ways. You either A) make your work ethic and resulting artistry amazing to the point in which to stand out. Or B) Quit. I always say it’s so much easier to quit, but it is even more fulfilling to overcome the hard task and succeed. People in cities like ours can begin with encouraging the various scenes within it, Making themselves known in a place where a lot of these creative areas seem too niche for a dominant playing field. Im a firm believer in lending a helping hand, because this crab in a bucket mentality ain’t gonna help no one.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
I am currently in the early stages to developing my own website. So until then follow me Instagram @kspts ( https://instagram.com/kspts/). You can also visit my current “site” at http://kaleidoscopespots.com/ for all of the work from the start.
