A Yorkshire born artist, Robert E. Wells is well known for specialising in city and landscape paintings around London and the North Yorkshire Moors.
He moved to London in 1988 to study for a Masters Degree entitled The Illustration and Rendering of Architectural Spaces at London University. Prior to that he had studied at Batley Art College and worked for several years as an Architectural Illustrator. More recently he has turned to painting full time. Roberts is now a member of the Royal Federation of British Artists (RBA).
Finding inspiration in the towns and cities that he visits, Robert E.Wells seeks out unusual views of familiar landmarks and scenes – encouraging the viewer to see places from a different perspective. He often paints directly from the subject at all times of the year and in all weather. He has regularly exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the NEAC.
