An Unprecedented Year is the solo exhibition of award-winning artist Rob Pointon ROI, featuring over 25 original paintings all produced over the last extraordinary twelve months.


The life of a painter never stops. And for the past year, Rob Pointon has spent his time capturing a zeitgeist that has left nobody unaffected — touching everything from the economy, to family life, to the way we interact. Always painting on-location, the artist is uniquely positioned to observe the changing environment. This year, that change has been seismic. Pointon, a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, has become one of the country’s most exciting and promising living painters, and this show marks a pivotal moment in his impressive career. At the vanguard of plein air, he has turned his refined eye to the truly universal subject: now.

“The City of Manchester,” says Pointon, “has become my regular office, my early commute, my daily grind. The city's symbol of a worker bee resonates. These streets are my painting gymnasium and this show reflects my battle with urban life over a volatile year.”
