Robert Cathcart

Painting, Booth 606

Born in Belleville, Ontario in 1961. Robert studied graphic design at Durham College and after graduating he moved to Toronto. His design career was largely focused on producing promotional material for the pharmaceutical industry as well as working for a Toronto advertising agency. After many successful years in the advertising world Robert left the industry in 2010 to pursue his passion for painting and set up his studio in Aurora, Ontario. Inspired by the Canadian Landscape’s shapes and colours, he simplifies his impressionistic style paintings through the use of broad brush strokes, vibrant colours, square and rectangular shapes. These shapes add a sense of abstraction and convey a kind of whimsical feel to his paintings.
