Born in Wimbledon, Rowe studied at Wimbledon School of Art and the Royal College of Art. By 1931, appalled by the Slump and the growing threat of international Fascism, he began to make designs for Communist Party publications. Following 18 months of travel and design work in the Soviet Union, Rowe returned to England and in 1934 helped establish the Artists’ International Association, which eventually grew to about 900 strong.
