In printmaking Rob Niezen experiments, with linocuts, including reduction prints, blind emboss, collage (stamps), and text. His printmaking is influenced by European graphic novels and Dutch graphic tradition. Having worked in advertising and commercial graphic design for 25 years in Europe and Canada has informed the way he approaches layout and composition. As a result, narrative and contrast are important elements in his work.

Rob recently developed a new series named Heads & Tales, using linocut, blind emboss, stamps), and hand written text. In 2018 Rob was one of the selected artists included in Roll-O-Matic, Public Acts of Printmaking, as part of ArtsWeek Peterborough.
