Colin Brown (b. 1962) is known for his distinctive mixture of collage and paint. This is combined with a rich blending of cultures - ancient and modern, high and low - in works that are cerebral, beautiful and enduring. Technically he is a maestro of his medium.


“Colin Brown’s superbly balanced compositions combine painterly, accidental marks with elements of formal design drawn from mass media advertising and popular culture. He creates beautifully layered compositions of seduction and interrogation; exploring tensions between human drives of fluid creativity and control by design.”

Georgina Coburn, Arts writer


Colin Brown was born in Dundee and has worked throughout Europe and beyond, where many of his source materials and inspirations come from. He now lives and works in the northeast of Scotland.
