Robert Nicol

Represented by Dutch Uncle


I am a graduate of the Glasgow School of ArtThe Royal College of Art and the Institute of Education. I have worked on a range of national and international illustration projects producing editorial, book jacket and public art images. Through art consultant Tanya Rumpff I have exhibited sculpture, drawing and ceramics in a range of spaces across the UK and Europe. I continue to teach the creative arts at Central St Martins and Camberwell College of Art.    

While working I enjoy recurrent themes of the figure in the landscape, fear, existence, construction, human society humour and the surreal. I am interested in the relationship between object and the 2D image and its connection to different modes of storytelling.
