Artist Rob Bishop is based in Hertfordshire. He studied graphic design at college and model making at university and has his fathers love of wood as a natural material. For the last ten years Rob has worked as a highly skilled cabinet maker.
By combining his skills he has created this unique style of art using layers of maple veneer to create something truly unique!
Rob says 'I manipulate an image digitally; which is up loaded to a laser machine and etched onto wood. I go to work on the piece with different colours, stains and layers of lacquer to create the image I have in my mind. When I'm satisfied with the image a final layer of lacquer is applied followed by a hand polished finish. Each piece is signed and marked with my thumb print'.
A small unique edition can be produced from each image but no two pieces can ever be the same therefore each one is truly original.
