Over the past seven years, Rob Snow has been defining a series of pieces under the title of “Animal Behaviour”. Inspired by his own companion dog and his love for nature, this series of artworks explores the quirky side of how nature could be integrated into human nature. With twists on the titles and clever use of wording, each image introduces an animal in an abstract, surreal or humorous scene of word play. Now reaching nearly seventy pieces, the full collection has had years of evolution, from development in pencil and digital rendering to full all out digital art. A selected number of pieces are displayed in this exhibition, to highlight the better side of nature. As an accompanying aspect to the animal series, the exhibition also highlights several of Rob Snow caricatures. A series of caricatures achieved for the Celebrity Sunday series, where a famous person is rendered within a day. The idea is to show them as if in a passport photo to have consistency. Developed originally as a method to assist the artist develop quicker rendering skills, the series has now spanned three years of development with over one hundred pieces in the collection. Each is a timely ‘soft’ caricature of a well-known figure from out vintage past or contemporary past, done solely in digital form.
