Robert Crack: The Stretham Connection 2015-17, Top Hats and Flat Caps opens at the Babylon Gallery in Ely this month.
Born in 1941 Robert Crack has lived, worked and painted in Cambridgeshire all his life. Having trained at Cambridge College of Art and Technology, he began his career as a sign writer.
Some of his early heraldic work can still be seen today in and around the colleges of Cambridge. Much of his working life was spent in the graphic industry using litho and screen printing techniques.
Painting became a passion early in his life and using oil on canvas, wooden panels (The Floorboards Series) and mixed media he has created figurative images which give a narrative of the world around him.
In recent years he has concentrated on creating finely detailed portraits.
