ANTONIUS ROBERTS is one of the bahamas’ most

outstanding artists expressing himself as painter, sculptor,
open-space designer and cultural ambassador.

Roberts co-founded Junior Junkanoo and coordinated the first
inter-High school Junkanoo Competition. For ten years, he
served as art educator and art director at Government High
school, as well as art lecturer at the College of the bahamas.
by invitation of the Central bank of the bahamas Governor,
sir William Allen, Roberts developed the guidelines for the
bank’s annual art exhibition and serves as the exhibition’s
founding Curator.

in 1989, Roberts succeeded eddie Minnis as coordinator and
supervisor of the FinCo summer Art Workshop. in 1991, he
became chairman of the national Arts/Museum Committee of
the bahamas Quincentennial Commission and is co-founder
of the bahamian Art Gallery.

Among many of his notable works are Sacred Space, an onsite

installation of wood totem poles that pay homage to a slave
landing site in the bahamas, and Bubbles, a hanging installation
of 150 handblown glass spheres that celebrate the beauty of
bahamian waters in the Lynden Pindling international Airport.

Roberts is a member of b-C.A.u.s.e. (bahamian Creative Artists
united for serious expression) alongside bahamian artists John
beadle, Jackson burnside, stan burnside, brent Malone, and
Maxwell taylor. Recently stan burnside, beadle and Roberts
paid tribute to their deceased brothers brent and Jackson by
collaborating on a large body of work referred to as Jammin' V.

in 2012, Roberts opened his art gallery and studio at 25
Cumberland street, in an historic building known as Hillside
House. With the help of private and public partnership, this
property has been transformed into an outstanding example of
reclamation and preservation of historical sites in downtown
nassau, the bahamas. Hillside House has evolved into a space
where the creative community gathers to discuss art and issues
facing the art community at large.
