|November 2019 marks Bob’s 5th year of involvement amongst Louder, as Bob Art Models, the festival’s Artist in Residence.
His portraits are punky and fun and done purely through Bob’s appreciation for the subject matter.
Trained in 3D Design, Bob discovered portrait painting much, much later in life. His first public exhibition was alongside KLF giant, Mr Bill Drummond 20 years ago.
Bob’s Great Uncle on his Mum’s side was Freddie Garrity from Freddie And The Dreamers, and Bob’s Nan on his Dad’s side was childhood friends with both Vera Lynn and Bert Weedon. That explains a lot. A historical name dropper.
Bob is author of the Storm Thorgerson and Pink Floyd tribute picture book “Storm@75”.
