Bob’s more recent work encompasses his wonderment and intrigue at what lies within our cities laneways.
The graffiti strewn laneways, their weathered facades with peeling posters and discarded crates present a myriad of possibilities for creative interpretation. A sinister, surreal and enticing landscape hidden away behind the bustling thoroughfares of our modern metropolis .Truly a place of light and shade in every sense. 


A coffee table book entitled ”Downtown” featuring many of his city scapes is available from the Shop
