Robert Huff (1945-2014) was a fixture in the late 20th century Miami art scene and he influenced generations of South Florida artists long before ArtBasel Miami Beach transformed the area into an art mecca. He lived, worked, and taught in South Florida for 46 years and his color palette evolved over the years to include the blues, oranges, and yellows of the tropics to the reds and blues, along with gold leaf, that he introduced into his work after a profoundly affecting trip to Russia. Able to envision on a grand scale, he had major public works commissions around Miami, including three at airports. His distinct brand of tropical urbanism came to signify the rapid transformation of South Florida and still seems fresh and relevant to the spirit of the area to this day.
