Robert Dunt

Artist Statement

Robert Dunt is an abstract/pop art artist who graduated from City & Guilds of London Art School (2004) with First Class honours. His painting, prints and installations are inspired by music and explore the use of colour in a contemporary context. His practice has a rebel ethic that distorts art traditions in order to create surprising and original works: “Like putting Botticelli’s Venus through a Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face distortion pedal.” 


He has exhibited nationally and internationally. He has had several solo shows - Madonnas and Housemasters, Charterhouse School (2015), Break on Through, Waterloo Gallery (2004) and I Wanna Trip You Up, Covent Garden (2004).

He has been selected for the ING Discerning Eye, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, NEAC, and the Singer & Friedlander/Sunday Times Watercolour Competition. He featured in a TV advert for TD Trading airing on Sky News. His work is held in numerous private collections. He is the Founder of the art review website ArtTop10.com.
