“I manipulate an image digitally; which is up loaded to a laser machine and etched onto wood. I go to work on the piece with different colours, stains and layers of lacquer to create the image I have in my mind. When satisfied with the image, a final layer of lacquer is applied followed by a hand polished finish . Each piece is signed and marked with my thumb print. No two pieces can ever be the same and therefore every piece is unique.”
Rob Bishop is a Hertfordshire based artist whose artistic journey started when he studied graphic design and model making at University. He works as an independent artist exhibiting his pieces exclusively in select galleries throughout the UK.
For a number of years he worked as a cabinet maker and by utilising all his skills developed a unique style of art which combines modern technology with classic techniques. His work is mixed media consisting of digital art, wood work, painting and drawing.
Rob creates the image digitally using a variety of techniques such as drawing, image manipulation and collage. He engraves the image onto 12mm maple veneered board to give a 3D reference image which he develops by sketching in details. Only then can each piece be hand painted by building up many layers of wood stains and lacquer.
Each piece with its bespoke wooden frame has been created in its entirety from scratch. All of his works and frames are signed & thumb printed.
