Robin Reynolds


Born Zimbabwe 1952; artist working in pen-and-ink and watercolour.

Robin Reynolds spent most of his working life in journalism and business communications in the United Kingdom. Latterly he was responsible for the BBC’s art and history collections.

Initially he pursued drawing in spare time between work and family commitments. But since 2010 he has been developing stories in pictures full-time, along a number of themes – notably fantasy townscapes and disasters, and more recently city panoramas.

His biggest work to date is Visscher Redrawn, which took nearly two years to complete. The next major project – a view of New Orleans underpinned by a pageant of its colorful history – is an even bigger undertaking. The work will feature in the city’s Tricentennial in 2018.
