Iain Robertson came from Edinburgh to live in Cornwall in 1999.

A painting by this artist, Mega Jazzy (2002) is part of the permanent collection of Cornwall Council. This became in early 2006, what the Tate St Ives have termed 'a pivotal multiple painting which set out to show something of his lexicon of individual forms': Mega-Jazzy 2006 consists of fifty paintings of one foot square. His work was selected by the Tate St Ives for their survey show of 2007, Art Now Cornwall.

Robertson works from Porthmeor Studios, St Ives (2013).
