Event description

Description

Rob will be talking about his favourite stuff, his toy collection and how that influences his work. He will also be sharing some of his favourite entries from his new book, Festival Folk.

Rob's work has been described as 'trippy.... as if you took a whole load of acid, ate too much candyfloss and went on the waltzers at your town's local fair. It's all a bit much, borderline grotesque, but you had a brilliant time."

Rob channels his love for ghoulish characters, psychedelic colours, and anthropomorphic food into his bright and brilliant work. To the backdrop of a hoard of vintage action figures and Happy Meal toys, he creates his illustrations that embody this obvious love for humour and characters.

There seems to never be a dull moment in his studio nor a dull millimetre in his acidically vibrant images.

"Ideally I’d like to live in a land of hamburger patches, milkshake volcanoes and fillet-o-fish lakes." Rob Flowers 2010
