Robert Nicol is an artist and illustrator who lives in Norfolk. He is a graduate of Glasgow school of Art and the Royal College. He has exhibited his work widely. In his paintings he plays with ideas of the human figure in landscape, humour, fear and the surreal and  is interested in the relationship between object, the 2D image and their connection to different modes of story telling. His work has a variety of influences from Dutch landscape painting and classic takings on the mythological to pop and folk art. Many of his paintings and sculptures are very small echoing the work of 18th century portrait miniaturists and artists working within the Netherlandish naturalist miniature tradition such as Joris Hoefnagel. Robert also grows Bonzai trees.
