2015
Since Summer 2014, Robin exhibited at several shows in the UK including, Silverstone Classic and Goodwood Revival. He also travelled to America again for Monterey Car Week.
At the start of 2015, he showed his work at the inaugural London Classic Car Show at Canary Wharf, London, before leaving for Retromobile in Paris. In April he went to Germany for the Techno Classica, in Essen.
At the time of writing, Robin is preparing for the Goodwood Revival. He will also be showing his work at the inaugural Classic and Sports car - The London Show, at Alexander Palace, London at the end of October.
Robin has been invited to exhibit a selection of his sculptures at the 'Art of Motoring' exhibition in the Royal Opera Arcade on Pall Mall from 26th October to 31st October 2015.

FORTHCOMING EXHIBITIONS & EVENTS

2016 has been a hectic year with exciting shows in Paris, London and California.

The prototype of the Bentley  Continental sculpture was exhibited in Paris. Months were spent perfecting it. It was finally launched
at the Automobilia show during Car Week in Monterey in August.

 

 

                  

                   

New paintings available are 'LIFT OFF'- Lotus Cortina and 'SIDEBITER' - Ken Miles in the Cobra'.

 

 



Robin was, once again selected to exhibit at THE ART OF MOTORING exhibition in Pall Mall, London.

This year saw the end of the Ford license agreement. It has been great working with Ford, but the Mustang edition is now complete. Perhaps we can work together on another project in the future?

TECHNO CLASSICA, ESSEN

In March 2013, Robin exhibited again at Techno Classica in Essen, Germany. This year he had a larger stand and was able to show his extended range of sculpture as well as his large prints.

Techno Classica is a huge and sumptuous five day feast for classic car buffs, with hall after enormous hall of delicious classic machinery to gorge on.

The crazy Friday night party is great for exhibitors to meet up with old friends and make some new ones. This year, Robin was invited to the Classic and Sportscar Dinner, a marvellous affair, held in what must be the oldest surviving building in Essen and certainly one of the most beautiful.

It was a great week.

CARROLL SHELBY

While at Pebble Beach, Robin was invited to Los Angeles to visit the Carroll Shelby factory. Licensing of a Shelby Cobra was discussed and suggestions for other opportunities made. Robin toured the works and viewed Carroll Shelby's personal car collection. Discussions are on-going.

FORD LICENSE

Ford Motor Co. has agreed a licensing arrangement with Robin to produce a 50th Anniversary MUSTANG sculpture that is due for release in April 2014. The company has suggested that he produce a sculpture of the 2015 car.

BOB BONDURANT

During Monterey Week, Robin met up with Bob Bondurant, the ex-Shelby Cobra driver, who signed an AC Cobra sulpture for a charity auction held at Santa Fe Concorso, New Mexico.

NORMAN DEWIS and the 'BUBBLE' JAG

Norman, now 93, achieved the ultimate speed record on the Jabbeke Highway in  1953 driving the 'Bubble'. Norman has agreed to sign a limited edition of 120 'Bubble' sculptures. Still very active, Norman flew in for Monterey Week to appear alongside Jeff Lotman's restored 'Bubble' at Quail. He was also involved with several other events and in the evenings he appeared as guest speaker at Jaguar meetings. An incredibly energetic and very likeable man.

MONTEREY WEEK 2013- 2014

AUTOMOBILIA 2013 - 14 is organised down to the last detail by Tony Singer. It is a small, but highly focussed show held at a local hotel and is attended by  top international collectors. Tony knows his market well and is very fussy about who takes part and what is displayed. It is a marvellous couple of days and Robin has made many new and valuable contacts.

RETRO AUTO 2013 was held in a marquee at the show entrance.The public went through it on their way to the Pebble Beach Concourse. It was a hectic show with little time to look around, though Sunday breakfast was spent watching the Concourse traffic jam. What an incredible sight!

In the evenings, when the appointments and meetings have been attended to, it was time to stroll down the main street of the Old Town, kerb to kerb (and beyond) with cruising or parked up classic machinery. There, to relax at some pavement restaurant and watch the show go by with, all around, the hubbub of shows and side-shows, film shows, club events, auctions and the pulsating throb of car engines.

The following week, Robin drove down to LA to meet with the Ford licensing team and to follow up an invitation from the Carroll Shelby organisation to discuss possible licensing opportunities.

RETROMOBILE, PARIS  2014

In February 2014, Robin exhibited at Retromobile in Paris for the first time.

Retromobile surely must be the most stylish and flamboyant of classic motor shows. It is not a huge show, but every exhibit is special and presented with a panache that only the French can manage.

It was a wonderful show and great to exhibit alongside all the other artists in the 'Galerie des Artistes'
