Robert Sosner

Robert studied painting at Chelsea School of Art and has been a recipient of a bursary from the Pollock Krasner Foundation, New York. He has taught artists throughout the film and broadcast media industries and is a mentor to local professional artists.

"Experimentation, discovery, picture structure and spatial clarity are some central themes in my teaching, always with an eye on the historical and contextual tradition of painting."

"I am inspired by work that stands outside the hysteria of our time, something new, surprising, engaging and challenging."
