About the Artist
Self-taught and crediting comic books for teaching him how to draw, Rob Sketcherman is an iPad artist and urban sketcher who only learned about the practice of recording and sharing one’s life through sketches a few years ago. Compelled to simplify and downsize due to limited physical space, and inspired by David Hockney’s adoption of the iPad as a creative medium, he decided to go completely digital at the beginning of 2014, embracing the speed and versatility of working with what he often refers to as his Ultimate Mobile Digital Studio. Rob thrives on the immediacy of responding to sights, smells and sounds before him, telling snippets of stories of as they unfold in the moment, whether he is on a street market at home in Hong Kong, or exploring corners of the globe with friends from the global urban sketching community. His work has since taken him around the world on a variety of project commissions, as well as teaching workshops, where he leads people of all stripes to use iPads in their own journeys of appreciating details and recording their lives while making art on the street.
