Island of Maui

ROBERT BISSELL’S imaginary realism paintings have captivated viewers for over a decade and have been exhibited across the US and Europe. Bissell’s paintings of bears with butterflies, elephants and rabbits are playful meditations on the inner lives of those creatures and, by extension, of human creatures. He hopes his paintings appeal to the intellectual child in everyone, reminding people of the mythic and universal human values in the tradition of the great heroic-quest stories. His work encourages viewers to reflect on nature, the roads they travel, and the choices made along the way. Bissell’s originals and limited edition prints are highly sought after and collected. His work is on view and available at Lahaina Galleries in The Shops at Wailea.
