ROB RITCHIE IS ONE OF OUR FEATURED ARTISTS DECEMBER 21/JANUARY 22
Rob paints in oil and is inspired and attracted to light and reflections, with an exquisite attention to tone and detail. His work possesses an appeal which is timeless, with the use of blending traditional Old Masters' techniques with a contemporary setting and feel and with harmony of colour, shadow and composition. This gives his paintings an individuality, merging both contemporary and traditional styles.
Born and brought up in London, Rob always had a passion for art since a young child and was continually drawing. In 1993 aged 27 and with no formal training, Rob turned to painting professionally.
Working continually with his passion and refining his skill over many years, his work has become much admired leading to a successful career, with galleries and clients eager to purchase all that Rob can paint. Rob's work has been well established internationally, and paintings are represented in over 45 countries worldwide.
