About Arron

Arron Kuiper was born in 1984 in rural North Wales where he grew up and has lived for most of his life. He studied Fine Art at Licester De Montfort University before transferring to Cardiff School of Art and Design. He graduated in 2011.

 

He is best known for the creation of sculptural oil painting, a technique which he has been developing and refining for over a decade. Despite ongoing struggles with funding, exposure, and even opportunity, he has experienced some success, including a Prize in the ING Discerning Eye exhibition at the Mall galleries London in 2011, a front cover of A.N. Magazine, his solo show Terra Infirma in 2014, and an article in Vice: The Creators Project in 2015.

Arron moved back home to North Wales in 2016 where he continues to work in a shed in the middle of the woods.
