Robin Wise

Robin Wise (b. 1962 in Stirling, Scotland) lives and works in Aberdeen, Scotland. Wise says one of his favourite things to capture in his black and white artwork is everyday life at Newton Dee in Bieldside, where he has lived since 1991. The village of Newton Dee provides a place for adults with additional support needs, like Wise, to live and work together with volunteers in a mutually supportive environment. Wise has been drawing since he was a young boy, and has amassed a vast body of work. These drawings are a beautiful depiction of his life and his environment, through his unique perspective. “I like to draw pictures of things in Aberdeen, like hills, landscapes and trees. Drawing makes me feel relaxed and happy. I’m excited to meet people and see what they think about my drawings.”  Solo exhibition: Robin Wise, Story Café, Aberdeen, Scotland (2019)
