2 Local Great Neck Artists
Robert Wallman and Warren Mintz

In addition to his fine art, long-time Great Neck resident Robert Wallman is also a graphic designer and illustrator with experience in advertising, corporate communications, marketing, packaging, and publishing.

When Warren Mintz retired from full time teaching, it became important to him to explore ways outside the classroom to do something meaningful.  One of the possible activities evolved from the poster collages.  He decided to collect cutouts and almost all of his collages begin by first choosing a background and then building upon it.
