Robert Cooper (1994) is a multidisciplinary artist graduating from the Edinburgh College of Art in 2018. His work uses the images of animals as a conduit to discuss the realities of consumerism, capitalism and mass production. His 2D work uses rapid mark making to reflect these ideals and capture speed and motion. He uses humour, colour and abstraction to illustrate emotion and energy across all his mediums.

Please do not bid on artwork in our Art on a Postcard auctions if you intend on selling the artwork after you have purchased it.

When the work produced for the charity is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
