Contemporary Oil Paintings Adorning Sydney Walls

A painter with a passion and talent for corrugated signage art – Ross Tamlin’s contemporary oil paintings have hit a nerve. A mix between hyper realism, pop art and surrealism, Ross Tamlin’s art zeroes in on areas often foregone by other painters, to show their undeniable beauty.

Tall, blue skies create the spacious backdrop for paintings of cargo ships at port. Laughing clowns with a backdrop of stark, bold letters. Jumbled heaps of scrap metal. Bright colours, striking fonts. There’s an art to finding beauty in everyday materials – and Ross Tamlin has caught that beauty in his oil paintings.

A life of art

Having grown up in an artistic household, Ross Tamlin quickly showed a talent for painting. Following a fine arts degree, and a job in a paint manufacturing business – Ross Tamlin developed a keen understanding of painting, pigments, resins, oils and more. Inspired by surrealism he created his own distinct style through merging facets of contemporary surrealism and hyper realism. His style – rich in signage and corrugated iron details, and often patchworks of metal sheets and letters is today a distinct and recognisable style rich in meaning.
