Alan Roberts, artist/cartoonist, Nelson, New Zealand.
Welcome to my Art site, i hope you find lots to interest & smile about !
I am a self taught Artist, with an Art range from the extremes of painting cartoons to painting realistic scenes, in particular, those of rural Nelson. This realistic look, an almost photographic look has always been a fascination for me and so I strive to get as much detail, as close to reality, in my art. Old rural buildings are a notable attraction, the more faults the more character I get to portray on canvas. My cartoons are the opposite, total silliness, all my original thoughts, all designed, whether bought or not, to bring smiles to the viewer! I prefer to use acrylic paint, as the sharpness in colours seems to suit my style.
My influences are Spike Milligan, the Nelson Landscape and my moods are shaped by the results of Sheffield United Football Club.
And of course my main inspiration comes from my Mum and Dad!
All paintings are for sale unless stated "sold"
