About



Some Blurb


Rob White's illustration has been commissioned by a variety of clients from advertising, editorial and publishing, fashion houses, music industry, museums and galleries. His impactful style emits a vibrating nervous energy, imbued with dark humour and light. It is a careful fusion of traditional medium and modern digital techniques, which combine hand-rendered drawing, dirt, paint, paper collage and digital textures layered with striking colour.

Alongside commercial projects, he is continually developing his own artistic practice, travelling to remote parts of the world and immersing himself in different landscapes and cultures. Landscape painting and adventures in landscape; getting into the muck, drawing with pencil, charcoal and ink, exploring the visceral through expressive mark making, this represents the core foundation of his creative work.
