Sholto Blissett was born in 1996 in Salisbury in the UK. He attended The University of Durham where he received a degree in Geography before undertaking an MA in painting at the Royal College of Art. He paints large-scale oil on canvas works that represent imagined landscapes. Blissett’s paintings are heavily influenced by the German Romantics, blending the Sublime with the surreal. The subject matter is reminiscent of science fiction while still remaining uncannily familiar.
