Robert Bowers has been refining his painting techniques for over a decade, with the wild world a common theme over this time.
A tropical, colourful setting suffuses many of his paintings, creating a warm palette and mood.
Bowers paintings typically highlight lost scenes set within lush foliage, sometimes including hidden figures, both human and animal. Roberts work combines the beauty of nature with the unexpected simplicity of the everyday norm, creating a sense of nostalgia and wonder.
His creations come in all forms of sizes; from intricate paintings the size of a post card, to large scale murals that still present the same amount of detail.
Robert has held numerous solo exhibitions across Australia over his career and has also been shown in numerous exhibitions further abroad; including New York, London and Singapore.
Bowers is an Australian artist, currently living in Melbourne.
