Tobe is a graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts (TSOA). He obtained his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1996 for Film Producing and Screenwriting. Since then, he has moved on to gain experience as a co-producer of a New York-based video production company specializing in Native American programming, has entered the world of Fine Art Photography, Art Curation, and 360 Imagery as a Google Trusted Photographer.
Currently, Tobe is an Independent Art Curator- dedicated to helping others, positivity, and collaboration. His influences range from the techniques of his father, Tobe Roberts Sr. to Hasui Kawase, Hiroshi Yoshida, Jack Vettriano, Edward Hopper, Bill Rabbit, Yoshitoshi Tsukioka, JD Challenger, and R.C Gorman.
I continuously seek out a resplendent beauty and a story in my environment, making it a memory to share and evoking tranquility. My photography focuses mostly on the richness of bold colors, nature, landscapes, and equine souls. I like to build my portfolio with images that inspire and enchant. I believe art has energetic resonance and the colors we select can move us and heal. My work is heavily influenced by nature.
I enjoy including works that showcase my skills in composition, colors that complement each other, use of light, new media techniques, and different perspectives. I also currently spread awareness for Wild & Rescued Horses through my photography. Most of all, my art reflects the beauty of the soul, and this is what I want to show to the world.
