Robert Plisnier was born in Brussels in 1951.
He was educated at Eton College where his talent for drawing was apparent, winning the School Drawing Prize. He then went to Paris and studied Fine Art at L’Academie des Beaux Arts from 1969-72, but despite continuing to paint and draw Plisnier did not make painting his full time career until 1987.
Whilst living in Barcelona he worked towards his first exhibition.
Plisnier works in oil on canvas and oil on paper using sweeping brush strokes full of colour, giving his paintings impact and vitality. Often his paintings depict elegant young women in café society scenes.
He has had various one man shows in London and Belguim and his work included in numerous group exhibitions throughout the UK.
Plisnier now lives and works in Gloucestershire.
