Rob Shaw lives in Truro, Nova Scotia. In his previous life Rob was in the financial service industry but a few years ago that all changed when he traded in his vast collection of suit and ties for a more exciting and creative life in the arts. Rob has since graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design with a Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Design. Upon graduation, Rob has worked as a freelance designer and more recently has focused his attention primarily on visual art. As a visual artist, Rob works in a variety of mediums: ink, watercolours, collage, acrylics and digital mixed media. His current pieces are colorful abstract explorations heavily influenced by today's uncertain times and the feelings and emotions we are all experiencing. Rob is a member of the Truro Art Society and Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS). Rob's paintings, drawings and wearable art can be found in private collections throughout Canada.
Rob's first showing was part of the Truro Art Society's Member Exhibit at the Novel Tea Bookstore and Cafe on Sept 13, 2020. "It was the hottest show in town!
