As President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Ian Cryer holds absolute responsibility for the development and promotion of the medium of oil painting and those artists who excel within its use.

The ROI was founded in 1882 and granted Royal status by King Edward VII in 1909. It is confined to a very limited number of elected members, who each demonstrate the required level of excellence in the field of oil painting. Today the ROI continues to demand the same high standard of excellence set by legendary members of the past, such as Rodin, who showed their work in ROI exhibitions. Its records, beginning in 1882, are held in London's Victoria & Albert Museum.

Ian Cryer was born in 1959. He is a West Country Artist, known worldwide for his modern impressionist oil paintings of evocative landscapes, timeless railway imagery, interiors and intriguing characters. His style has evolved as a result of many years working directly from life, this having given him a freshness and spontaneity that are the hallmarks of his work.

Cryer's rise to President of the Royal Oil Institute resulted from his phenomenal success over decades in exhibitions with professional Art Societies including the Royal Academy, The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal Society of Marine Artists and The Royal West of England Academy. His integration within these revered organisations are strong indicators of even greater things to come as his career continues to develop.

His works are held in many private and public collections including Pricewaterhouse-Coopers, Longleat House and The House of Lords' Permanent Collection. He has also enjoyed lucrative commissions from the likes of the Crossrail Project, English, Welsh and Scottish Railways and Royal Mail.
