Leigh Glover studied at Oxford Brookes University and Heatherley’s School of Fine Art, London. Glover’s work has been in the exhibitions of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (2008) and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters (2009) and the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2010.

The portrait is of spoken word and hip-hop performer Scroobius Pip. Glover made contact through Scroobius Pip’s MySpace page and asked if he would consider sitting for an on going series depicting British singers and songwriters. Glover also wanted the depiction to respond to the narrative of Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip’s single, ‘Angles’.
