Robert Lee is a Canadian born, English educated, artist and designer. Formerly also a Lecturer in Art & Design, he works now primarily as a Box Artist, beginning each work by searching for boxes, and for images and other found objects to put in them.

Some of Robert’s boxes have a literary provocation and, in these works, the relevant book is often included as part of the contents of the box. In others found objects or the box itself become the starting point

Most of his works have over-arching concerns with sculptural and spatial imagery and with a sense of place, text and event.

Robert has work in private collections in Argentina, Canada and Sweden as well as in the UK.

His boxes are shown regularly by 'Designs by Seed' at the Black Swan in Frome and he has taken part in group and in joint exhibitions in Bath, Frome and London.
