Joshua is a young artist with experience working in a number of different media, most prominently paint and audio-visual installation. He’s currently developing his painting technique with a series of very different paintings, as a sort of visual étude. Joshua works on canvas with acrylic and enjoys experimenting with subject and media. Focusing on small snapshots of ordinary objects and scenes, he likes to take a closer look and view them in a different light bringing unseen details to the forefront.

Phil Robinson

Studio 4

Phil’s practice involves creating meaningful images through observation of the world around him and through his own personal experiences. He integrates the story behind the creation of those images as part of their final narrative by recording the process; the journeys made, the locations and the people met along the way.

Phil is a graduate of Museum and Art Gallery studies from University of Leicester. He started producing artwork last year and has been shortlisted for the Refresh Art Award in 2019. He’s continuing to develop his portfolio working with different media including; pencil, charcoal, pastels and oil paints.
