Welcome to the website of Gordon Wilson, one of Scotland's most exciting contemporary artists.
Gordon Wilson was born in 1968 and grew up in Glasgow, where he is now based. 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.
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.
Demand for Gordon’s colourful artwork continues to grow, and today his work can be found in both corporate and private collections across the world. He exhibits in leading art galleries throughout the UK and has participated in several solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions, including The Royal Glasgow Institute and The Paisley Arts Institute.
'2017 has been a whirlwind year, with exciting and successful solo and group exhibitions. My two solo exhibitions with The Annan Gallery, Glasgow and The Fotheringham Gallery, Bridge Of Allan, were hugely enjoyable, it's great to see my work being so well received. I also took part in several group shows, including The Whitehouse Gallery, Kirkudbright; The Smithy Gallery, Blanefield; The Strathearn Gallery, Crieff and The Red Rag Gallery, Bath, to name but a few. I am delighted to be a permanent gallery artist at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle having had a wonderful solo exhibition in their Cube Gallery last year. Once again Eduardo Alessandro Studios in Dundee took my work to the London Art Fairs in Hampstead and Battersea, with Hampstead being a sell-out. I am also delighted to announce that I am now exhibiting with The Doorway Gallery, Dublin. This will be the first representation I have in Ireland, and I'm very much looking forward to it. My work has been sent all over the world again this year, finding new homes in America, Australia and Canada. I have been working towards Christmas exhibitions, which you will find a list of on the exhibition page. As for next year, I am excited to be working towards a two-person show at The Lemond Gallery, Bearsden, next spring and a Solo exhibition with The Annan Gallery, Glasgow in the Autumn.'
