"In addition to my ‘Bosnia’ work, I enjoy painting more traditional subjects such as portraiture, figurative paintings, still life and cityscapes. However, I occasionally like to add some more interest, by creating in them, a desire for narratives.

I love looking at all genres of paintings, but I’m in awe when looking at the work of great painters such as David Hockney, Peter Howson, Stanley Spencer and Lucian Freud.

The Surrealist and Pre Raphaelites movements have always been a source of inspiration for me.

I am indebted to Monica McCarey and Duncan Scott from ‘iota’ gallery. Glasgow for discovering me as an “emerging artist” in 2013. Their continuing support is inspirational."

St Mungos Museum of Religious Life and Art, Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, both in Glasgow, have acquired Robert's paintings and the Musee de la Bataille de Fromelles in France has one his paintings (‘Grave Faces’) on permanent display.

Plans are in place to show one of his paintings: ‘Comfort Blanket,’ as part of the ‘iota’ ‘Transitional Toys’ exhibition in Geneva, and in Milan. You can find out more about this exhibition here.
