Copyright 2018. Robert Peter Kirbyson
Rob conceives visceral, surreal and idiosyncratic ideas and renders them carefully and precisely with acrylic and oil paints, inks and pencils. The process goes through pencil sketches, colour pencil renderings, sometimes to software mock up and then finally to paint. There are no happy accidents.
Inspiration is usually borne from within although Rob also likes to take a personal skewed look at other cultural touchstones.
Surfaces used are canvas, canvas board, wooden panel, aluminium and steel sheets.
Rob also works in magazine illustration (US publications).
Rob works from a secluded studio in Kinross, Scotland.
