PROUD SPONSOR OF INDUSTRY NEWS INDUSTRYNEWS ARTIST GIVES SEAL OF APPROVAL » » THERE’S MORE THAN ONE USE for the Mighton Ankerstuy coatings range. Independent cabinet-maker-turned-artist Rob Bishop recently tested some for his new artwork pieces - and was more than impressed. Created at his Hertfordshire-based workshop, Rob’s unique style of artwork is formed using a method that combines digital art with wood work and painting. Each piece, including a bespoke wooden frame, is created in its entirety from scratch with multiple layers of wood stain applied in order to produce a unique outcome every time. In 2015 Rob was signed by a major art publishing house within weeks of his first gallery appearance. However, in 2017 he decided to work as an independent artist which has allowed him to take full control of his work and be selective with what galleries he exclusively displays in. Mighton first introduced Anker Stuy Verven paint products to the UK joinery market in 2016, as a sole trusted distributor, before both companies announced an official partnership earlier this year. A rebrand of the range subsequently took place with all paints and coatings now distributed to UK joiners under the new Mighton Ankerstuy brand. www.mightonproducts.com www.robbishop.co.uk.
