MY NAME IS ROBERT SCHOLTEN AND WELCOME TO MY CREATIVE STUDIO.
I'm a creative soul. Aren't we all? I love making marks on a surface to express myself, whether it be paint strokes on a canvas or digital gestures on a laptop. In a world that loves categorising everything, I find it difficult to do so, and often end up in the description of cross-disciplinary "artist"or something like that.
In my work, I often cross boundaries of art, design, film, fashion and illustration. Generally, I love to get my hands dirty with whatever gets my creativity excited! It is all art, whether it is a wall in a shop or a comic book or a packaging design or a painting. Ultimately, creativity is driven by love.
Drawing Japan: Hirado
Art travel memoir about exploring this island through drawing.
Latest painting: Expansion
This is my latest painting in progress, at 2m by 2m in size. It is a semi-abstract monochrome landscape based on the streets of Melbourne, and more specifically, the Carlton area.
IN THIS POST-POSTMODERN DIGITAL ERA, WE STAND AT A POINT WHERE DISCIPLINES ARE OVERLAPPING, BLENDING AND PLAYING WITH EACH OTHER. ART IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF THIS BECAUSE IT CREATES VISUALISATION FOR OTHER INDUSTRIES. IT IS ALL ART, WHETHER IT IS A SHOP TO DISPLAY OUR WARES OR A FIT OUT FOR A HOTEL OR A DESIGN FOR PACKAGING OR EXHIBITING AN ARTIST WE ARE OBSESSED WITH, WE ARE ULTIMATELY DRIVEN BY A LOVE FOR ALL THINGS CREATIVE.
The shop is continually updated with select access to artworks and products that cannot be found anywhere else - straight from the artist's studio.
