Contemporary Scottish Painters

Peter Doig

Peter Doig was born in Scotland, in 1959 and he is one of the most important painters in the world. His paintings are exposed at MoMA, Tate Modern and Chicago Art Institute. He is very appreciated in Europe and the United States of America. He was called “an idyllic landscape painter”, or a post expressionist. Doig says that his work was born from the admiration he had towards Munch’s symbolism, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner’s expressionism and Edward Hopper’s naturalism. He is fascinated with the wide spaces, in which we find, almost every time, the connection of the human with the nature. His paintings describe abandoned places, vaguely defined, imaginary- although inspired from the snow deserts from Canada, or from Caribbean water. The paintings he sold since 2009 until now, worth 15.1 Euros.

Stephan Conroy

He was born in 1964 in Helensbourgh, Scotland. He had his first exhibition in 1989 at Malborough Fine Art, in London, at 25 years. In 1998, at Monaco, the artist won the price of the Royal Highness, Prince Ranier the III and in July, 2003 he held an exhibition in Schlesurg-Holstein Museum, from Schloss Gottorf, Germany. Conroy shows a great interest toward the man’s face. More than half of his paintings are self-portraits, studies of the human head, from the front or frontal. Conroy often uses geometric shapes, in order to frame his paintings, such as the black or orange vertical stripes in the left or right side of the painting.

While interior decorating paintings can be chosen for the home or office, it is important to make sure that those paintings work with your wall color. Hire a house painter if you do not have the time to do it yourself. Choosing a neutral color, such as white, will allow you to hang any type or style of artwork.
