Born in Northern Kentucky, Robert O’Neal spent most of his life in Cincinnati, Ohio. At an early age his creative skills were cultivated under the tutelage of his older sister Loretta. Before graduating from Withrow High School, O’Neal received a scholarship to attend the Cincinnati Art Academy during his summer break. He later graduated from the Gebhardt Commercial Arts School.

Robert O’Neal is an amazing talent whose visual reference is rooted in the urban issues of Cincinnati’s most challenging neighborhoods. The cultural movements of the 1960's led O’Neal to establish himself as a community activist and artist. O’Neal organized the United Self Expressionists, a group of local artists known as US. They created a body of works reflecting the experiences surrounding their community. During the 1960's, the Model Cities Program, an element of the Johnson Administration’s War on Poverty, originated in response to urban concerns. O’Neal became head of the Culture and Recreation Task Force of the Model Cities Program in Cincinnati. This project led to the creation of the Arts Consortium of Cincinnati in the West End, an organization that cultivated hundreds of African American artists and educated inner-city youth. O’Neal held the honorary title of Over-the-Rhine Mayor serving as an advocate for the homeless. For most of his life he suffered from rheumatoid arthritis which led to his participation in a March on Washington for disability rights. Years later he served on the Disabilities Advisory Committee for the Ohio Arts Council.

His teaching career included stints at the Arts and Humanities Resource Center where he worked with senior citizens, the Very Special Arts Ohio Program and the Cincinnati Recreation Commission. In line with his passion for grassroots initiatives, O’Neal also assisted in the founding of WAIF Community Radio. In 1994 he was honored by Applause Magazine Image Makers and was also one of 25 African American artists featured at the prestigious Closson's Gallery in downtown Cincinnati.
