ROBERT LEE WADE


Robert Lee-Wade was born in Cambridge in 1944, and studied Fine Arts at Canterbury and Folkestone Colleges of Art, followed by further studies at Newport Film School, Wales. A period of four years in the film business followed, making advertising commercials, television dramas (late night thrillers!) and documentaries. A move to Northern Ireland in 1972 started him painting again, as well as working with Ulster Television to help make the Gordon Burns Hour, a live twenty-two programme late-night chat show. Later, he accepted an invitation to head the new art department at Campbell College, where he worked for twenty years, leaving to pursue full-time painting in 1995. Robert moved back to England in 2006, and now lives in Amberley, Gloucestershire. Robert has exhibited in many solo and group shows both in the UK and the USA, including the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin and annually with the Royal Ulster Academy, of which he became an academician in 2003 and was formerly vice president. His work has been purchased by a number of public institutions and private companies in Northern Ireland, including the Ulster Museum and the Stormont Government Buildings. Many of his paintings have been purchased by art lovers both at home and abroad, and are now found in private collections worldwide, in countries which include Switzerland, France, Italy, Canada, America and Australia. He has continued his tuition both privately, and for the Open College of the Arts, and since 1997 has regularly sailed on cruise ships as artist-in-residence. Robert uses his travels to seek new inspiration for his painting, and shares that inspiration with others through his teaching, lecture presentations and, of course, through his art.
