Robin Coleman

Biography

Robin Coleman has achieved international renown by creating his own highly personal style of pop art which is completely unlike any other art on the contemporary market.

Technically impressive, stylistically distinctive, but most of all, instantly engaging, each of his innovative pieces brims with character and cultural references and introduces life, light colour into any interior.

Initially Robin worked exclusively as a painter, but as he explored a wider array of media his work moved into a whole new dimension and began to bring him global recognition. He now incorporates elements ranging from magazine cuttings, stamps and newsprint to vintage comic book characters, often from the original publications, and pays homage to other artists, particularly Roy Lichtenstein. Although his work is at home on gallery walls, he paints and composes his dazzling collages on surfaces taken directly from the street; ranging from skateboards to road signs, these introduce an artful frisson of urban drama and authenticity.

Robin works alone and by hand, so each individual collage takes many hours of meticulous planning and dedication, and close examination reveals an astonishing level of lovingly created detail. The lengthy process means that there is now a massive demand for each new piece due to their rarity.
 
Robin has exhibited in many galleries across the UK and in locations including New York, Cape Town, Dubai and Paris alongside pioneers of street art including Banksy, Mr Brainwash and Eine. Antonio Banderas is one of many celebrities who collect his work, and he has been featured widely in the media, including in various magazine such as Art of England and Art Times. His works have been selling out at auction for double their estimate, making him one to watch in terms of investment opportunity.
