Rob Wass is a mixed media artist and photographer based in Hastings UK. His work explores the theme Organised Chaos and often depicts naturalistic scenes with a twist.

Working with layers of ink, paint and silkscreen a conversation between dark and light begins, his rhythmical and intricate illustrations catch the viewers eye but look a little closer and you might find some hidden elements like a tiny spider that has spun a web the size of a tree or a dinosaur bone in the wing of an owl.
His passion for photography also plays a crucial role in his work. Armed with his camera Wass looks for patterns in the natural world, whether it be a murmuration of Starlings or the tiny veins on a leaf, everything is documented and these photographs often go on to become parts in his work.
