The Secret World of Drawing Pictures

Can the intimacy of the thumbnail sketch, raw and untethered reveal secret thoughts and hidden meaning? Artist and Lecturer Robbie Bushe deconstructs both his own and his heroes’ pictorial drawings and paintings and retraces their roots in early doodles and sketches.


Can the intimacy of the thumbnail sketch, raw and untethered reveal secret thoughts and hidden meaning? Artist and Lecturer Robbie Bushe deconstructs both his own and his heroes’ pictorial drawings and paintings and retraces their roots in early doodles and sketches.

Robbie Bushe has shown his narrative paintings throughout the UK since 1990. His work, inspired the characters and the places we has have lived and worked, has won several national awards including most recently the inaugural W Gordon Smith painting prize at the Dovecot Galleries in Edinburgh.
Born in Liverpool in 1964, he grew up in Aberdeenshire, before graduating in Painting at Edinburgh College of Art in 1990 and has successfully combined a career as both an artist and art lecturer. He taught painting at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, was Head of Fine Art at University of Chichester, and also lectured at Kent Institute of Art and Design and Oxford Brookes University.
He moved back to Scotland in 2007 to become the coordinator of short courses at Edinburgh College of Art, now part of the University of Edinburgh where he is now lecturer in Art and Design. Robbie was also President of Visual Arts Scotland from 2013-2016.
