Robin Slonina is a multidisciplinary artist whose work includes bodypainting, sculpture, painting, installation and performance art. Much of her work is interactive, inviting the viewer to experience the art rather than simply observe it. Slonina enjoys taking the “Do Not Touch” sign off of her art, inviting people to recognize art as an integral and fun part of everyday life.
Robin graduated from the School of the Art Institute in her native Chicago, but Las Vegas has been her home for the past fifteen years, where she lives with her young son Leo and her husband Jimmy, who is a performer with Cirque du Soleil. She has been deeply influenced by the nature and neon of her adopted city. She also loves the culture of creativity and support found in the Vegas Arts District, where she founded the world-famous event company Skin City Body Painting. Robin is a passionate community advocate, a member of the Arts District Board and participates in multiple charity events each year.
Her artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums all over the world, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Smart Museum of Art, the Peace Museum, the Contemporary Art Workshop, the University of Chicago, DePaul University, John Michael Kohler Arts Museum, The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, Compton Verney Museum, UNLV's Tam Gallery, Emergency Arts, The Smith Center, Springs Preserve, Life Cube, Meow Wolf, Art-o-mat, Atomic Todd Gallery, Ambrosino Gallery, Lucky Gallery, Recycled Propaganda gallery and the Arts Factory.
