Roger Thorp is a British artist born in Chapel-en-le-Frith in Derbyshire in 1955. He currently lives and works in Cornwall.

Roger Thorp’s artwork consists of still images exhibited alongside complex, multi-media, immersive and participatory installations. Thorp’s work effectively transmits his enormous sensitivity towards the earth, humanity and spirituality, becoming a manifestation of deep joy and a proclamation of existence for those who forget where they are going.

Thorp has directed programmes for NGO’s such as WWF, ILO and the Red Cross, working in Australia, Mongolia and the USA. He has also made two feature films.

Other work by Roger as a writer/director has been screened in Rome, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Oslo, Berlin and London. In 2004 he co-founded the art-house online gallery ‘Little Song Films’ and in 2015 he founded ‘The Olive Network’ a sophisticated web platform built to foster tolerance and understanding throughout diverse global communities by focusing on the positive long term contributions of charity, the arts and humanities.
