Biography

Rupert Record

Since graduating from the Royal Academy Schools in 1996, Rupert Record has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and in America. He has work in many private and corporate collections in Europe and the US. 

Recent solo exhibitions include ‘Suspension’ at the George Gallery.  He won a travel scholarship to Italy and this experience affected his approach to the use of light within his paintings.  He started using less conventional materials and techniques such as blackboard paint and spray paints. 

Rupert Record’s recent paintings have become meditative but technically complex while being executed in an energetic and spontaneous way.
