Fine Artist

R.A Chopping (b. 1994) will graduate from York SJ University with BA (Hons) in Fine Art. The West Yorkshire based artist is primarily interested in painting and extends his interest into collage and sculpture. Working across a variety of disciplines that investigate different subjects, Chopping places importance on the value of playing by moving material around and exploring mark making through varying degrees of finish. All of his work demonstrates a painterly touch whether through oils, acrylics, plaster or collage.
