Art: Rob Hefferan’s oil paintings


Born in Manchester in 1968, English artist Rob Hefferan is both an artist and illustrator. His oil paintings are found at galleries around the world.

My Modern Metropolis says, “He has the rare, uncanny ability to create realistic scenes with only his imagination and a paintbrush. The way he captures skin tones, movement, and fabric is remarkable.”
