About

This is the website of artist Robert Crisp. In the 1960's hewas a student of Guildford, Croydon and Nottingham Schools of Art, graduating in stage design and painting. He has worked in various theatres designing sets and painting scenery. He moved to Devon in the 1970's to concentrate on painting and on picture restoration.

Robert started painting full time in 1992, working from a studio in Sidmouth, and taught Art both privately and for Devon Adult and Community Learning until a couple of years ago when he decided to concentrate solely on his painting. Rob has also recently taken on the role of President for the Otter Vale Art Society. Inspiration comes from the urban, man-made landscape with its symmetry, balance, detail and imposing grandeur. From the wonderful buildings of London, Paris, Venice and so many more cities, to the quaint villages and harbours, man has created his own landscape. Robert Crisp paintings clearly show that his skills lie in the ability to execute exquisite attention to detail and capture the very essence of urban life. Robert Crisp paintings have been exhibited at the Mall Galleries and the Royal Academy Summer Show. Rob has had a number of one man shows and his work is eminently collectable and can be found in private collections throughout the UK and Europe.
