Arnold Dobbs is a London-born painter based at APT Studios in Deptford.
His work has developed over fifty years of practice and has always been eclectic with many changes and influences. Although his imagery is mainly abstract there is also some cross-over into figuration, including many completely figurative pieces.
Dobbs' work has always embraced both bold, strong colour and surface texture. His work is intuitive, passionate and can be widely interpreted. His practice in recent years has evolved to include some sculpture using mainly found timber and other objects, occasionally waxed or painted.
His work has been extensively collected both in the UK and internationally. He also has work in public collections including Goldsmiths, University of London (eight paintings) and numerous private commissions.
