Duncan Shanks was born in Airdrie and studied at Glasgow School of Art where he later lectured. He draws his subjects and inspiration from the countryside around his home in the Clyde Valley. Strong colour and richly applied paint chart the changing seasons and the forces imminent in nature. His works also examine the perennial tasks and practices of traditional rural life.

The Scottish Gallery hosted an exhibition of Duncan Shanks' work in June 2019 titled Transience. Click here to purchase a catalogue.
