Robin Elvin. 1957 - 2015

Robin Elvin was among the first artists to portray the then Lady Dianna Spencer and Prince Charles just before the wedding. Three Robin Elvin pictures are included in the Royal Collection.

An association with the great Muhammad Ali resulted in some of Robin's best work,

In 1995 Robin was approached by the Louisiana State Musical Heritage commission and asked to do a series of paintings depicting the legendary blues men. This three-year project resulted in a touring exhibition, which was viewed throughout the United States, receiving critical acclaim. The project proved to be the catalyst for several openings, guitar legend Walter Trout saw Robin's work and commissioned him to design and produce the entire artwork for his first live album Face the Music.

In the same year he painted a Jimi Hendrix memorial album cover Blue Haze, his most recent album cover was for young guitar virtuoso Danny Bryant's album 'Shadows Passed'.

2002 brought a change of direction when Robin was approached by the BBC TV to take part in a pilot programme for a new art series called 'Painting Stars' where he and two other artists were filmed painting opera diva Lesley Garrett at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Although this programme was shelved, he subsequently featured in a new BBC series Star Portraits with Rolf Harris where he painted Michael Parkinson.

Since this incredible success Robin has been approached by numerous known names and companies to undertake major commissions.
