Gordon Wilson was born in 1968 and grew up in Glasgow, where he is now based with his wife and two children. He studied at The Glasgow School Of Art, and has worked in the art industry for many years as a designer, picture framer and artist. He now paints full time from his studio in Milngavie, Glasgow.
Gordon's subject matter ranges from quirky portraiture to emotive land and seascapes, and his deep love of the west coast of Scotland shines through in his evocative work. Gordon paints from the heart; his expressive oil paintings reflect the ever changing moods of both the countryside and the artist himself. His much loved paintings of old ladies (Biddies), Belted Galloway's and characterful Clyde 'puffers' allow him to create amusing narratives in his paintings.
Gordon has had sell out solo exhibitions and has participated in prestigious group exhibitions in leading art galleries throughout the UK, Ireland and the USA. Demand for Gordon's colourful artwork continues to grow and today his paintings can be found in both corporate and private collections all over the world.
