Royal Institute of Oil Painters

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.


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.

What to Expect:

  • A warm welcome to the exhibition
  • A series of artist-led events throughout the show
  • Over 300 original artworks for sale
  • All works available through the Own Art scheme that allows for any purchase to be spread, interest free, over 10 months
