Robert Bateman
Local artist Robert Bateman, who specialises in charcoal photorealism is a self taught 30 year old from Swindon endeavours to meticulously capture the smallest details of his subject “in order to produce a realistic standard.” Robert’s paintings and drawings often decieve the eyes, as their definitive, detailed rendering perfectly resembles the quality of a high resoloution photograph. The illusion, created through Roberts skillfull application of various media is a convincing depiction of (simulated) reality. Within Robert’s paintings textures, surfaces, lighting effects, and shadows often appear clearer and more distinct than the reference photo itself. Robert says “Born in Swindon, I am completely self-taught in my technique. My inspirations come from the extremely successful Paul Cadden, known for his large scale hyperrealistic graphite drawings, as well as Kelvin Okafor, another highly skilled photorealistic artist.”
