After completing a Foundation in Art, in the city of Lincoln, he moved to London and completed a BA HONS Fine Art Degree in Printmaking and Book Arts, while simultaneously working and gaining critique on his Paintings in the studios of Kingston University.
Everything begins with sketches, there are no limits to how many ways something can be approached, but it is always key to find the right path before the final stages can begin. After choosing viewpoints and compositional elements, and making sure the narrative is accurate and concise Rohan moves onto ink. He often plays upon his love of films to bring the viewer to a new way of looking at an ordinary scene. Although he began with a very monochrome palette, in the last few years he has challenged himself with a colour palette of watercolour paint. This has created a new dimension to his work, and opened up a whole new world of possibilities.
Rohan's style has often been categorized as classical, and he understands that his tools are anything but modern, but his skill is in bringing the beauty of the hand crafted illustration into the present day. Through clever use of viewpoint and composition his work feels fresh and current, while retaining elements of the past that bring a sense of clarity and assuredness to the final piece.
