Robin Chuter’s style is characterised by merging highly vibrant warm colours with what can be seen as bordering caricature and line art using Indian ink with the use of canvas and also the most mundane objects
He is an upbeat artist who draws and paints onto absolutely everything. Wooden panels, chairs, old laptops, vinyl covers – he did it.
He grew up in a very mixed environment, born in Belgium, and moved to London in 1992 where he carried on with his artistic journeys running a small independent record label where nearly all was done by hand, including the artwork for the record covers, long before there was the internet.
At one point he decided to move on in life's journey towards using colour and paper only. He developed his own comical and crazy world, where strange forms or faces mix with a feast of colours, at the crossroad between abstract and figurative art, working in his studio in West London.
Ask him where he comes from and he answers: “Pluto”. And yes, it’s this unusual mixture of his mind which makes his art so unique, joyful and different.
His world is both comical and crazy (strange organic forms dominate a large number of his works), brimming with bright and warm colors, at the crossroads between abstraction and figurative.
