After achieving an A* grade for his GCSE, Rupert has continued with his interest in Art, not only with his own drawings but as a collector too. Rupert has a keen eye for the interesting and quirky; he follows several artists closely and has become an avid supporter of their work.
Born in Harlow in 1988, Rupert grew up in Hertfordshire and found recognition at an early age by winning the role of Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film adaptation series. Whilst between scenes on set he would always have a good stock of sketch pads and pencils to hand, drawing to pass the time.
Today he jumps at the chance to get involved with any art projects, and loves to push himself, trying different techniques to achieve his aims.
