ROBERT POWELL (b. 1985) is a Scottish artists recognisable for his incredibly detailed and scholarly paintings, prints, installation and sculpture. They are very often darkly humorous and satirical and the result of Powell’s singular vision.


“Intelligent, mocking, fun and much more; Robert Powell has a unique artistic voice. His work occupies a place where art meets science and history. With his eye for minute detail and composition, and his head for arcane learning, Powell forces us to explore our past in order to understand our present. His work sits within a European tradition of dark humour carried out with incredible flair and expression. “

 Tony Davidson, Director of Kilmorack Gallery


Robert Powell studied at Edinburgh College of Art and still lives and work in Edinburgh.
