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.

Visscher Redrawn, a view of London as Visscher would have seen it 400 years after his 1616 forerunner, took nearly two years to complete, and his latest work, New Orleans: Between Heaven and Hell, took even longer.

What a wonderful artist is Robin. The fantasies of a gifted story-teller
