Royal Institute of Oil Painters

Exhibition from 29 November to 16 December 2023

On the occasion of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters' Annual Exhibition 2023, new President Adebanji Alade takes us around London to discover what this year's exhibition theme 'Urban Life' truly means.

The ROI Annual Exhibition has a well earned reputation for attracting talented young exhibitors, alongside much admired, more established member artists. The exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to see the many and varied ways in which artists use oil paint today, from a traditional approach, to more innovative uses of material, style, and content. The Royal Institute of Oil Painters was founded in 1882. Today, as then, it promotes and exhibits work of the highest standard in oil paint.
