Born in Mexico in 1938, Robert Graham is internationally renowned for sculptural interpretations of the human form through both intimate works and large scale public installations. Graham is unique for having achieved success in the contemporary art world as a traditional sculptor. Among his best known pieces are the 1986 Monument to Joe Louis, a 24-foot bronze fist in Detroit, the Great Bronze Doors which form the entryway to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, and the Olympic Gateway, commissioned for the 1984 Olympics, which stands before the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. His work is held in many important public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The National Gallery in Washington and The Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

For his Mixografia series, Graham cast copper bas reliefs depicting variations on the female nude enclosed in a frame within the square perimeter of the image. In this process Graham merges sculpture and print-making, experimenting with the intersection between the two mediums while maintaining the individuality of each piece with the use of hand-painted patinas.
