Rob paints entirely en plein air and has a particular interest in the use of wider angle perspectives and the depiction of movement within his paintings.
Born 1982, Rob has been painting since he was a child under the tutelage of his artist Grandmother, then, as an adult, graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Fine Art from Aberystwyth University before going on to study at The Royal Drawing School in London. Having been a full time professional artist since 2006, Rob's skills have developed through his work on locations all around the UK and abroad.
Rob has recently been elected a full member of the ROI (the Royal Institute of Oil Painters) & is also a member of MAFA (Manchester Academy of Fine Arts). Between 2016-2019 he is the International Artist in Residence for Manchester Airport, travelling to different direct destinations and bringing back exhibitions of work to be showcased in the terminals.
Rob Pointon is the latest artist to join us and will have his first exhibition in June 2021.
