About Ross Tamlin
Ross Tamlin’s signature works are his text paintings, which initially appear to viewers as being made of corrugated iron, but in actuality are enamel and oil paintings on flat stretched canvas. Tamlin’s works require many layers of canvas sealer, primer and enamel paint, and then are finished with oil paints and varnish. His text inspiration ranges from lyrics of favorite songs to city names and public figures. Tamlin has had many solo exhibitions in Australia and exhibits in Europe, Asia and North America. Originally from New Zealand, Tamlin now resides in Australia.
