Robert Koch, 1971, an accomplished landscape and wildlife artist, has an in-depth feeling and inspiration for Africa. As a child he accompanied his father on frequent painting excursions into the African bush, acquiring an infinite knowledge of his subject matter.
At an early age, Robert had his first exhibition and has since earned his living from painting the African wilderness.
Robert is the son of the renowned wildlife artist, Martin Koch, nephew of Francois Koch. Both brothers are highly exhibited international artists.
At the age of 23 he participated in his first Christies Annual Wildlife Art Auction, in London, which was very well received by art collectors.
This ability has earned him commissions from various local and international collectors.
He is adept in oil on canvas, watercolour and sculpture. He is a brilliant landscape, wildlife and portrait artist.
Robert is a naturalist, realist and is sometimes impressionistic, forming his own style.
Robert says: “I have always had freedom of expressing myself and I believe it formed me into a versatile artist.”
“I love creating light in my paintings to enhance the atmosphere and African scenes present the ideal setting.”
He has the ability to capture that specific moment that seems insignificant, that moment between events, to capture the mood and this is superbly presented in his work.
It is his consuming love and passion for the subjects of his paintings that make them come alive, make them a little piece of Africa.
