Rob Wass was previously known as DATA, he is a mixed media artist known for his cityscapes and vivid depictions of flora and fauna.
Rob Wass works across a range of mediums from illustration, painting, sculpture and film making. A regular theme is his use of colour which provides energy to his stark black and white drawings.
Wass's cityscapes have a vibrancy and a darkness that reflect the experience of a big city, these juxtapose with his images of trees and animals which always appear to be much more bright and alive. The colours in the cities suggest at the life held within the buildings but when compared to the trees and birds that Wass creates it shows a different character.
Rob Wass captures something of the urban landscape, the hidden life and energy within. The interaction between oils and inks in his work allow for a fluidity reminiscent of life in the city.
