Today we’d like to introduce you to Randy Palmer Wrosiv.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Randy. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
In childhood, I found a big book in our home library filled with drawings of all types, each with a signature of either my mom or dad. Alone I thought; If they could do this, I could do it better, I was inspired by the dreams & concepts of my parents. Their technical ability was perfection in my eyes so I took an opposite approach and literally started out scribbling abstractions with my eyes closed to reveal an image in the chaos. Upgraded to challenging my siblings to drawing contests, I won. In adolescence, I was fascinated with new technologies to create with, burnt out on drawing, but not nearly as over art as my parents were. There was a whole infinite world of possibilities I got lost in as the tools trickledown to me. Forward motion meeting kindred souls along the way fueling the vision is how I got to where I am in adulthood today. God knows where we’re going. Loyal to my purpose.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There has been anomalies of struggle along the way. In this rocky life I’m what’s smooth, so rough waters flow around me, if I’m not with the wave I stand planted. I’ve almost died a few times, loved ones and peers have passed away. There’s more worries on the road I’m on than just my work, but nothing is forgotten, so everything is energy to be put into positivity some shape or art form.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a fine artist, production designer, filmmaker, art director known for creating thought-provoking beauty and inspiration. With environments, celebrity clients, and spotlighted muses alike, I bring out the devil in details on a godlike scale. That’s what sets me apart, my deeper connection to the subject matter no matter if it’s God made or man-made.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I have ideas on creating a bridge from Houston to Hollywood as my birthplace Atlanta does with its Georgia Peach productions and other popular regions do so greatly. Donald Barthelme was a Pulitzer Prize winning short story writer, whom died in Houston, note his obituary said that “collage was the art form of the 20th century”. Well, I was born at the end of that 2nd millennium and I’m giving the 3rd everything that was birthed from it. Video is the art form of this new 21st century. Mark my words. Voyage with me on social media for a future full of art at its rawest and most cutting edge forms @WROSIV.
