Born in 1964 in Liverpool, Robbie Bushe is an artist who now lives and works in Scotland. Robbie tends to create oil paintings in an illustrative style, depicting unusual scenes such as imagined, futuristic cities. As such, there is a deep sense of narrative running through his art, which could be referred to as a type of fantasy art. Each painting is filled with weird and wonderful characters, and it’s easy to lose yourself in Robbie’s imagined worlds.
Robbie first came to art through graphic design, and then went on to study a BA in Painting and Drawing and an MA in painting, both from Edinburgh College of Art. He has since had a prolific career, producing countless figurative paintings that have been shown in exhibitions across the world. In addition to painting, he has also lectured at various UK universities and was President of Visual Arts Scotland between 2013 and 2016.
Robbie’s figurative art has been shown in solo and group exhibitions across the globe, including shows at the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Academy in London. Robbie has also won various awards, the most recent of which was the inaugural W Gordon Smith painting prize at the Dovecot Galleries in Edinburgh.
