Robert Steven Connett is a self-taught artist living in Los Angeles, California. His beautifully realized visions of an unseen world teeming with vibrant and complex lifeforms open windows into a universe that we rarely contemplate. Microscopic biological phenomena in nature, flora, and fauna, particularly oceanic origins, provide Connett with bountiful inspirations. His imagination ensures his creations rise above the natural and inhabit a sphere somewhere between the familiar and the extraordinary. Connett masterfully brings a sumptuous and bizarre underworld into existence, a remembrance of a time when life was plentiful and mysterious before the current great extinctions began.
