Art of Life By Bob Acosta & Lillian Monterrey
About the Artists
55 year old, Cuban born Roberto Acosta Neto was raised in the USA since 6 years of age. Lived in Miami, Cuba, New York and Florida's Emerald Coast. Schooled in computer arts and the roofing and construction field. His many hobbies include restoration of old Ford cars. Having owned several show winning Shelby Cobra and Boss Mustangs and other Muscle era cars and vintage classic cars. He is an avid shooter and archer and loves hunting. He has always been interested in painting since a very young child. Self taught raw artist, initially inspired by his artist father. Took up painting prolifically when his beloved father died and he inherited his father's painting equipment. His paintings now hang in the homes of many people. His art reflects an abstract flare to old and modern themes. Bob Acosta works alla prima, never knowing what the painting will look like when he starts. He may work on a painting for a day or set it aside and look and work on it for a month. Bob Acosta paints because he loves to paint. He says "Painting is my genes". He also refinishes furniture and creates artistic wall finishes, all in his precious little spare time.
Bob Acosta's tropical theme paintings reflect his upbringing in South Florida. Always saying he lives in paradise with South Beach, the Florida Keys and Florida's West Coast so close, it's little wonder the area is a great influence in his art.
His passion is his abstract painting. He defines abstract painting in this manner: "An abstract painting is or can be a non-accurate representation of a form or object. Though we are tempted to look for objects in paintings where there aren't any, it is a challenge to create an abstract painting that has meaning. An artist never finishes a painting, a painting is abandoned at the point of highest satisfaction. A good abstract painting evokes emotion, whether positive or negative."
Painting is not his vocation though. Bob owns Florida Roof Tech Corp. one of South Florida's finest roofing companies. He loves what he does. It's an extension of the time when he worked with his hands and the pride of dong a job right.

Bob wrote this for her a long time ago:
Who am I?
I am She who comes from over the
Water and in the Lake
I am She who sees the Unseen
and hears the Unheard
I am the Founder and Healer
the Voice and the Ear
For I am Lillian and Lillian means Me
