Ross Tamlin was born in Aukland, New Zealand in 1958 and now lives and works in Kyogle, New South Wales, Australia. He began a Fine Arts Certificate course at TAFE NSW Meadowbank in Meadowbank, Australia, and in Brisbane he completed a graphic arts course before returning to Sydney. His signature corrugated iron paintings combine traditional art genres including still-life and landscape along with graphic art. Influenced by the De Stijl movement, these paintings represent a synthesis of art and function. Incorporating the aesthetics of modern industrial technique, the corrugation in his photorealistic compositions is a visual illusion created by layers of paint and varnish. Tamlin's began showing his work in the mid 1980s and has a stellar worldwide exhibition history. Some recent highlights include participation in the Hong Kong and New York editions of Affordable Art Fair in 2018 and 2019 and a group show with Artspace Warehouse, Los Angeles in 2019.
