Bio:

Tobes Rainbird is a Jersey-born multi-disciplinary artist, based in the UK. Working mainly within the medians of paint and film, his work seeks to communicate a sense of fraught truth and notions of the subjective experience. His work often conveys both personal and interpersonal observations -creating a sincere discussion about the multi-faceted nature of truth and reality.

As an artist he follows an intentionally non-coherent style, believing in the fluidity of material and ideas -seeking to avoid a self-prescribed methodology or a cynical dissection of visual language.

He is currently an Associate member of Spike Island (Bristol), winner of Bath School of Art & Design's Outstanding Achievement in Fine Art Award 2016, and former studio assistant to Glyn Burton.
He has been previously been selected for the Richard Long Master Class, Dexter Dalwood’s seminar group, WAC Awards and the Porthleven Prize. Also winning the Henry Thomas Bosdet Memorial Award and the Robert Mcavoy Memorial Award in 2013.
