Meet Robert ShortSircuit Wilson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Robert ShortSircuit Wilson.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
My story started in Easton, Pennsylvania where I was born and raised at 21 I got kicked out of my house because I pursued the dance career. And I was homeless and my good friend to this day, Ramel let me stay at his place. Up until I moved to New York where I lived for six years, during that time, I had no financial support from anyone except me. So, my family didn’t support what I did, so during the early process. I was homeless in New York quite a lot. While not knowing anyone. I just believe I can make it threw and that was all the incentive i needed then in 2015, I was on my first tour with Iluminate company traveled the world with them. As well as winning dance competitions at that time showing my individual skill as well as touring the world. So, I kept the push and moved to LA and within the two years, I been here I was able to travel more of the world through dance as well as work and be around artists like Drake Ariana grande Chris Brown 2 chains Cardi B Off Set and many more. I’m not finished, I have many more accomplishments, I have to achieve so I will push and accomplish everything I set my mind to.

Please tell us about your artwork.
My art is dance and for me the first time I experienced dance it was from a guy named, Angel Alanzo, he showed me a wave for the first time while I was 18. That’s when I started, dance. For me, it’s 2 things, I do my art because the first experience I performed, I saw smiles and people telling I changed there day and mood. The face I can do that blew my mind and it made me happy to be able to deliver that to anyone. And the second thing is I learned from a lot of dancers who don’t dance anymore and just enjoyed the essence of dance so I carry a lot of peoples skill set and hope on my back because it made pursue things that they either couldn’t so I feel responsible to accomplish these goals not just for me but for everyone who put the time in to me to help get me better.

We often hear from artists that being an artist can be lonely. Any advice for those looking to connect with other artists?
I would say yes and it’s okay to be lonely and developing yourself to achieve the highest point for yourself. But also people who are looking to connect, you can go to social events in your field. Which you can find threw hashtags on Instagram or Google places or free events.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
