By anyone’s standards, Rob Cooper serves a unique market. His studio is on the island of Koh Tao, Thailand—a two-hour boat trip from the mainland. It’s a tourist-driven business community made up of dive shops, restaurants, cafés, hotels and such that cater to the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come to this tropical paradise for the rock climbing, scuba diving, hiking and stunning beaches.
A native of New Zealand who spent 12 years in the States, Rob first came to Koh Tao to climb but decided to stay. He and Puay, his wife, and son Wesley divide their time between the island and the mainland.
