Archie Forrest

RGI Born: 1950

Archie Forrest studied at GSA 1969-73 and taught there 1978-85 but now paints full time. He works in the Glasgow School/Scottish Colourist tradition with still life, figure and landscape subjects (often France or Italy) of brilliant colour and bravura handling underpinned by fine drawing and sense of form; he is also a sculptor of considerable merit. He has shown with great success both in London and with The Scottish Gallery in Edinburgh.
