John Brown

RSW Born: 0

Brown studied at Glasgow School of Art 1963-8 where he subsequently taught. He worked as the Director of Arts at many Scottish schools, latterly at the Edinburgh Academy. He now paints full-time and is a long-standing exhibitor at RSW, RSA and RGI, winning many awards including the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Association Residency, which formed the basis of his 2011 exhibition. His work is characterised by a rich and vibrant palette and varied use of oil, mixed media and collage. His subjects are often based on particular foreign travel, his last shows at The Scottish Gallery have included works influenced by trips to Venice, Kerala and Mekong.  Most recently he has travelled to Cuba, which will form the subject of his next solo show with us.

We were delighted by John's last solo exhibition at The Scottish Gallery which took place October 2014.
