Bob Mueller’s Wild Mind for Art began as a child of the 1960s. Social justice, via art & sport, was the first to stand and “be the change we wanted of the world.” Pop Art and artists defined the world wildly – visually, graphically and musically. What were dreams then, are realities now, as artist and athletes alike have demanded social justice. From Jackie Robinson, through Muhammad Ali, to Colin Kaepernick, and LeBron James, the bond of sports to art has always been on the cutting edge of change.
Mueller’s powerful work is sought and collectable. His art stirs passion, inspires action, and reconnects people to their hidden dreams. That might be an unusual statement to attach to a work of art but it is true. Bob Mueller’s Art and dreams of being a Sports Artist catapulted to prominence when his life story won a 2008 Sports Emmy with Sport’s Legend Steve Sabol.
As Canada’s Sports Artist he has produced over 130 Sports Portraits over the past 15 years. In 2011 his art was featured in Canton Ohio with Pro Football Hall of Fame. He has been featured on ESPN, NFL Network, NFL Films, NFL AM, CTV, CBC, and was a finalist on Dragon’s Den.
Bob’s life story, “Finding Your Butkus”, won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Long Feature in 2008. He is a bestselling author with the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series (2014) and with his book “Finding Your Butkus – How to be Unstoppable in Life and Business” (2017) tells his story.
