Robert Moutrey is a multidisciplinary artist, born and raised in Manchester, now based in London. 


During his early adult years, Robert made his mark as a professional musician, touring across the UK, Europe, and North and South America. However, the global pandemic prompted him to seek new channels of creative expression that weren’t dependent on live audiences or in-person collaborations. This transition led Robert to immerse himself fully in painting.

Through self-guided learning, Robert cultivated a portfolio of commissioned portraits in his early thirties. He devoted himself to studying the techniques of artistic pioneers, ranging from the early Renaissance to the 20th Century impressionists. His particular interests lie in revitalising traditional aspects of composition and capturing the human form.

Beneath the surface of his creative spirit lies a contemplative, introspective mind. Robert revels in the intricate unravelling of the psyche, to decode both his immediate experience and the wider social context. He passionately believes in the transformative power of art. And above all, he believes that for art to be a catalyst for shaping perspectives, it must be accessible experience and concept.

I believe that the more skilled the painter, the greater the connection with the subject, and the greater connection with the subject the more impactful the painting. My aim is to forge powerful connections by facilitating meaningful interactions. Through this process we will collaborate to create a portrait that communicates beyond the personal"
