Rob Kirbyson – Dark Matter

Rob Kirbyson conceives visceral, often surreal ideas and renders them carefully and precisely with acrylic and oil paints, inks and pencils. The process goes through pencil sketches, color pencil renderings, sometimes to software mock up and then finally to paint. There are no happy accidents.
Inspiration is usually borne existentially from within although Rob also likes to take a personal skewed look at other cultural touchstones.
Surfaces used are canvas, canvas board, wooden panel, aluminium sheet and electric toasters.
Rob also works in magazine illustration and as a cartoonist.
