master artists acknowledged

The Whistle Stop Gallery would like to recognize these artists as living masters.

Robert Hilger (2018)

Chicago, IL, USA

If I had to pick one word to represent Mr. Hilger's artistic persona, that's what I'd choose. Granted, many artists are enthusiastic about art, but Mr. Hilger has a unique brand of art enthusiasm. His mastery of the pen, pencil, and like instruments makes the opportunity to see his work a most enjoyable experience. His work must come to life, must be appreciated, must be enjoyed, because Mr. Hilger wants it to be so, wills it to be so, requires it to be so.
