Robert Matthew artwork for sale and artist biography
Born in Edinburgh in 1972, Robert was educated at Edinburgh College of Art (BA in Illustration and Printmaking) before going on to Goldsmith's College.
Robert has exhibited in Edinburgh and at the RWA in Bristol, showing his innovative prints, made following his modern update on 'Scarti di avviamento', the technical term in Italian for paper that is fed through a printin...g press twice to clean the drums of ink between print runs.
His prints are created by repeatedly overprinting seemingly random, collected marks (flotsam) on an Epson Inkjet printer approximating the process of screenprinting. When the happy accidents of overlapping colours and shapes require more control or knocking back some mono-printing is employed.
