In New Orleans, Robert Warrens became part of a group of artists a New Orleans art critic dubbed “Visionary Imagists.” 

Prominent British art critic Edward Lucie-Smith, writing in his book about American art in the 1980s, describes Warrens’ “fantasy” paintings as the “quintessence of this particular aspect of Louisiana art … [that] introduces the spectator to a world where objects are in a constant state of transformation and where the artist’s impulse toward the fantastic is powered by a manic energy that is at variance with the traditional sleepy elegance of the Deep South.”  Fantasy seems to fit Warrens and his paintings.
