Lhouette Artist At The Acorn Gallery, Pocklington

Artist: Lhouette - Original Paintings:-

Lhouette, aka British artist Ciarán Robinson, is one of the UK’s most progressive proponents of urban pop. His name is taken from the word ‘silhouette’ – a key motif in his work. 

His ‘post urban glamour' and 'pop maximalist' concepts have won him international recognition, along with the widely collected silhouette figures which inspired his pseudonym. 

After leaving the Royal Navy in his early twenties, he spent a lot of time in East London and rediscovered his early interest in art with a whole new creative world of pop-up exhibitions, art studios and a dynamic urban art scene.

Lhouette began working in the art industry and spent two years studying an arts
course at Birkbeck University of London, before setting up his own studio in 2012. He uses mediums ranging from aerosol paints to high pigment heavy body acrylics, resins, diamond dust and metallic gilds and works with stencils, collage and hand painting.

Lhouettes charitable work includes raising tens of thousands of pounds for Unicef, Cancer Research, and the ‘The Estate We’re In’ campaign in Angel Town, Brixton. 

In 2023 he collaborated with Bonhams on ‘Hyper Pop’, a campaign promoting men’s mental health in aid of the charity Calm (Campaign Against Living Miserably) through a series of exhibits and showcases of new original artworks which were sold at auction.

Lhouette has held successful exhibitions in galleries and art fairs in London, Hong Kong, San Francisco and New York and his work has sold at Christies, Sotheby’s and Bonhams. His impressive list of private and corporate collectors includes Antonio Banderas, Tim Burton, Ronan & Storm Keating, Adrian Newey OBE, Tyran (Ty Ty ) Smith, The Khayami Family, The Dorchester Collection and CBRE Group.

In 2017 he enjoyed a 2 month residency at 45 Park Lane Hotel in affiliation with The Dorchester where he showcased over 30 works, all of which sold.
