Painting Title:

Too Few Role Models

'This was the easiest of paintings in that it worked from start to finish. I took influence from Bill Watterson’s brilliant ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ series where two characters play ‘war’ and when they have both been shot, the game is over.'

About The Artist
Born in 1985, Will Rochfort grew up in Lymington on the south coast of England and, apart from his time studying Illustration and Fine Art at Kingston University, he has lived there all his life. Since graduating in 2008 his focus has been primarily oil painting
Will Rochfort - Artist from Kingston Upon Thames Surrey
Will’s main reason for becoming an artist is from a passion for creativity. “There is rarely any strong meaning or message behind my work – narrative takes a large role because I like the work to be emotive through what is being portrayed, but creativity is the driving force behind all of my paintings”
From 2008 to 2010 Will Rochfort worked as an Official Artist for the upcoming 2012 London Olympics, working with Olympic Gold Medalists producing paintings in support of the Games and its associated charities.
As well as completing several portrait commissions Will Rochfort is always searching for new ideas for paintings and usually finds this in books or in the cinema. With influences ranging from Degas to Rockwell to the films of Steven Spielberg, it is narrative that really interests Rochfort and he aims to always have a story in his work. “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”
