Born in 1985, Will Rochfort grew up in Lymington on the south coast of England. Since graduating in Illustration and Fine Art at Kingston University in 2008 his focus has been primarily oil painting.
A passion for creativity is driving force behind Will's desire to paint. Eschewing the need to communicate a message or grand meaning through his work, he generally allows the narrative of the piece take a central role: 'I like the work to be emotive through what is being portrayed'. With influences ranging from Degas and Rockwell to the films of Stephen Spielberg, Will's highly accessible work typically has a striking filmic quality.
Will sums up his approach to painting: 'I am a very visual painter and with the public being my target audience over the art establishment I always aim to depict scenes that, through the characters portrayed, I hope people can relate to and enjoy'.
Will received national recognition for his talent when, from 2008 to 2010, he was invited to work as an Official Artist for the 2012 London Olympics. He worked with Olympic Gold Medallists producing paintings in support of the Games and its associated charities.
