About Robin Eckardt
There are no upcoming events
I was born on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico where I spent the first ten years of my life. I think a vibrant childhood strongly influenced my outlook on the world, particularly in my depiction of colour and texture … both important aspects of my paintings today. Since a very young age I have always had a passion for art. In my various studies as I’ve become more serious I’ve had the freedom to develop and experiment with painting techniques. I completed my BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Bath Spa University College in 2003.
I am very interested in the world and the environment around me and although my work is, to an extent, impressionistic, I also aim to capture the figurative and the very essence of reality. Consequently I’ve developed a style of contemporary painting that is quite textured and highly tactile with many layers of translucent glazes. My aim is to stimulate the viewers senses and imagination.
