Rob began as an illustrator who became fascinated by the collage works in the Dadaist movement, specifically the absurd works of Hannah Höch. This combined with the rawness of Punk collage consumed him. He admired the rips and tears of texture that punk artist Jamie Reid provided. Both of these influences led him to experiment with recycling imagery, enjoying the nostalgic qualities collage has. Although he admires the feel and texture within analogue collage he realised its limitations and began combining it with the advantages of digital collage.
During his time studying a BA in Design for Interaction and Moving Image he has developed his collage illustrations into animations, life size street art pieces, and even interactive installations.
