The Romanticism, Folklore and Fantasy of Michael McVeigh

Michael McVeigh

07 Sep 2016 - 01 Oct 2016

The Romanticism, Folklore and Fantasy of Michael McVeigh is the artist’s first major solo exhibition. He is a figurative painter and printmaker who has lived and worked in Edinburgh since 1982, a modern day folk artist who depicts the world around him, a participant observer who has created a naive/sophisticated setting for contemporary life and history. Above all, McVeigh’s work depicts Scotland, focusing particularly on city life, with all its subcultures and traditions. Edinburgh streets, Scottish pipes and drums, harbour scenes and pubs, fisherfolk and folk musicians come together in a romantic vision of Scotland which is both real and imagined.
