About Robin Kent

Robin Kent is a fine artist and portraitist, painting in traditional oil paint on canvas and board, watercolours and pen and wash.

Trained as an architect, Robin sees the painted portrait as a monument to individual personality, an iconic commemoration and celebration of the eternal human spirit, a window into the soul and a record of relationships:

“The human body is a kind of building and the face is the facade, the part which communicates who we are and how we are feeling. For me, portraiture has a unique depth of interest and meaning, and presents absorbing technical challenges which take it well beyond mere depiction.”
