Rob Shaw was born in Ripley, Derbyshire in 1974. He is a self-taught artist, who began painting in 1994 when his family moved to Boulby, overlooking Staithes. He later moved to the village and now works as a full time artist from his studio there. Rob is constantly seeking new ways to depict the buildings in Staithes and their ever-shifting relationship with the winds, the tides, the storms and the light that envelop them. The breakwaters at Staithes, the traditional boats are also a frequent subject matter. His painting 'London from St Paul’s with White Van' was hung at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2012 and 'St Paul’s London, Early Morning Light', selected for the 2013 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Rob will be exhibiting his current work in the Wesleyan Chapel.
Venue: Love Divine, Wesleyan Chapel
