About the Artist

Roberto began to swim even before he could walk, and quickly recognized his fascination with water, reflections and colors. Growing up in South Florida, Roberto learned to appreciate nature and vivid colors. Throughout high school and college, he swam in a competitive world level and began studying art, focusing on the interior architecture of pools and bodies of water.
