Artist Profile

Rob Wyn Yates

Wyn Yates’ trademark style features geometric forms created with colour, contrast and shadow bringing balance and progression to his work.

‘I enjoy creating illusions within my compositions by changing the direction of the light on the objects. I build up layer upon layer of thick paint, which gives depth and defines the accuracy of the painting.’

Wyn Yates has been consistently immersed in the visual arts. After finishing his training at Chelsea College of Art, he worked as an interior designer. He has exhibited widely in Suffolk where he is based, in London, Italy and the US.

He finds inspiration for his work everywhere: from the intricate balance of a bird’s plumage; to the shadow cast by a building; to the construction of a garment – the strong colours and contradictions that exist everywhere are a constant sourcebook for him.

His work is in numerous private collections both in the UK and overseas. Collaborations include: RADAR London, White Company, Orlebar Brown, Bombay Sapphire. Press includes: Homes and Gardens ‘Movers & Shakers’; Vogue Magazine; Saturday Telegraph.
