Biography
Rob Adams was born in 1954 in the County of Worcestershire in a small village called Finstall. On leaving school he experimented with architecture, before studying sculpture at Portsmouth College. After college he decided to move to London and become an illustrator. He scrimped and saved to buy materials and went three evenings a week to life drawing classes. He wrote and illustrated a children’s book which was published in 1995. When he was offered the opportunity to work on Film and TV design and sets he jumped at the chance, it was fun challenging and well paid… who could resist. The next decade or so were taken up with this endeavor. Rob painted and designed many stage sets for the theatre and made models for some very large productions, including vast murals for the VE day celebrations and the Queen’s Jubilee. During all this time he continued to paint en plein-air landscape and architectural watercolours whenever he had the opportunity and the occasional acrylic as well. Latterly he took up oils and started painting more and more. He decided a few years ago to give up most of his commercial work and devote his time to painting, concentrating mostly on the “city and its river trying to catch its many moods and beauties". Rob exhibited at the RSMA in 2012 and 2014, and the RWS in both 2012 and 2013. Both the RI and ROI in 2014. Also with the Wapping Group in 2013 and 2014. He was also one of the finalists for Artist of the Year 2013 run by the Artists and Illustrators magazine.
