Welcome to the new oil paintings by British artist and advertising exec Roger Bigg. Very simply, he said he paints because “ I just love the excitement of filling that white space, seeing the image grow, creating the balances between shapes and colours. Making the choice between realism and abstraction.” From a very young age of 3 or 4 young Bigg began painting, and by age 6 he won a painting competition for the BBC. He spent many hours “in my own world of drawing and colour.” Bigg was creative director for several international advertising agencies, such as McCann's, WPP and Publis. At age 18 at the Canterbury College of Arts for Fine Arts, graphic design and architecture, he was fortunate to have paintings hung at the Royal Academy of Arts. See his available works.
