About Robin Kent
Robin Kent is a portraitist, painting in traditional oil paint on canvas and board, watercolours, and also drawing in pencil, pen and wash.
Trained as an architect, and working in the modern realist style, 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.”
