Flame in Zero Gravity

Lives and works in Glasgow.

Rob Churm graduated with a BA (Hons), Fine Art, from Glasgow School of Art in 2001.

Rob’s works on paper (primarily drawing in materials such as ink, Biro and Tipp-Ex) form the focus of his visual arts practice. In parallel with this, he has also initiated and collaborated on a number of successful projects such as The Drapeau Noir (2010) and Prawn’s Pee (2012) for the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art. These projects used the idea of a ‘temporary autonomous zone’ to create an environment in which experimentation could take place. Rob is also known for his work as a musician and performer and has published recordings of his bands Park Attack and Gummy Stumps.
