Bob Vigg was born in the West of England and lived at Botallack near St Just in Penwith. With a limited palette and an 'army of brushes', he worked quickly to capture and interpret the rapidly changing weather and seasons of land, sea and sky in that far western promontory that is the Land's End. He exhibited often and widely in the West Country and has work in private collections internationally. His solo shows were always very popular with the collector and the public.
