The art of sugar skulls has become a passion for Rob-O. This passion has now opened the opportunity to preserve the Mexican culture as well as to enrich and educate the community about the beauty of sugar skulls and its role in celebrating and memorializing loved ones that have passed. It has taken a lifetime of trials and tribulations, faith, courage and family to now have the ability to provide an outlet for emotional healing, as well as inspiring all artists, young and not so young by visualizing, creating, and sharing unique one-of-a-kind sugar skulls.

Francisco's paintings are an interesting blend of conceptual ideas and artistic skill. His unique perspective and signature style employs pop imagery, irony and humor. This along with a deep understanding of anatomy, light, and form, allow him to present his concepts in a full spectrum of color and light that evokes a sense of heightened realism and unease. This is achieved by his use of stark light on dark human themes.
