Alan Davie (1920 – 2014)

Alan Davie is one of Scotland most internationally recognised artists with works in public collections across the world.

Davie studied at Edinburgh College of Art from 1938-40 and from an early age developed a love of the arts, wrote poetry and played the saxophone in a jazz band. Inspired by American Abstract Expressionism as well as Surrealism and the Cobra group he developed his own unique form of expression combining mythic imagery, enigmatic symbols, later taking inspiration from African and Oceanic Art as well as Zen Buddhism.
