Thursday 9th November 7.30pm. ( Our last demonstration/meeting of 2017)
It will be good to have Robert Bowers at out meeting on Thursday. It’s been a while since we’ve seen him.
Robert has produced a range of famous artworks, from the sculpture of a man on a motorbike outside the Waitrose store on the Penn Road in Wolverhampton to the Royal Television Award won by John Thaw.
His sculptures can be found in a range of corporate and high-profile collections including Audi, BMW and Porsche.
“I am inspired by everything. I see image after image and each one gets locked away in my head, ready to put on canvas. My work has been bought by people in the public eye.
“Mo Mowlam had a painting of an eye, because she was looking forward to her future after she left Northern Ireland.
“John Prescott had a stone sculpture and Tony Blair had a wall sculpture, which was an image of birth, life and death.”
Robert, who was born in Dudley, studied at Wolverhampton University and worked as a painter and sculptor after a career switch from being a hairdresser. He’s lectured in life drawing at Dudley College and has been elected an associate member of the prestigious Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
