|MARTIN ROBERT KOCH|
| Robert Koch, 1971, an accomplished wildlife
artist, has an in-depth feeling and inspiration for Africa. As a child he
accompanied his father on frequent painting excursions into the African
bush, acquiring an infinite knowledge of his subject matter.
At an early age, Robert had his first exhibition and has since earned his living from painting the African wilderness.
Robert is the son of the renowned wildlife artist, Martin Koch, nephew of Francois and Johan Koch. All the brothers are highly exhibited international artists, with Robert following rapidly in their footsteps.
At the age of 23 he participated in his first Christies Annual Wildlife Art Auction, in London, which was very well received by art collectors.
This ability has earned him commissions from various local and international collectors such as; American Broadway star, Jeff Fenholdt; American Hotel tycoon, Jerry Inzerillo; British billionaire, Sir Richard Branson; Sun International; Australian mining companies; South African National Parks; ABSA banking group; South African Defence Force; South African Broadcasting corporation; etc.
He is adept in oil on canvas, watercolour and sculpture. He is a brilliant landscape, wildlife and portrait artist.
Robert is a naturalist, realist and is sometimes impressionistic, forming his own style.
Robert says: “I have always had freedom of expressing myself and
I believe it formed me into a versatile artist.”
He has the ability to capture that specific moment that seems insignificant, that moment between events, to capture the mood and this is superbly presented in his work.
It is his consuming love and passion for the subjects of his paintings that make them come alive, make them a little piece of Africa.
