A motocross racer and fan for many years plus training as an illustrator paved the way for Rob Kinsey to launch Rob Kinsey Art... bringing fine art-quality to the most exciting sport on Earth!
Rob started racing motocross in 1974, culminating in competing in the British motocross championship. He still rides regularly today.
In the 1980s Rob's love of U.S. supercross and motocross saw him launch a successful dirt bike video business which meant he became close to many of the legendary riders of the era like Ricky Johnson.
After several years as an Area manager in both the bicycle and motorcycle industries, Rob became tired of the constant travelling and hassle of chasing sales targets, so ditched the suit, briefcase and returned the company car to pursue a more fulfilling career, back to his roots as an Illustrator. I have no understanding of the latest computer programmes, Illustrator or Photoshop and prefer to draw using my original Leitz ellipse templates, just like it was "back in the day!", before people became slaves to technology that has no passion or creativity.
His intimate knowledge of the sport and excellent artistic skills meant he won the accolade of worldwide Artist of the Year in the prestigious RacerX Magazine's annual awards in 2006.
