John Wetten Brown
Born in Glasgow, John initially became a restoration architect but later graduated in Art. From restoring Scotland's ancient monuments, he is now painting some of her most interesting treasures. His subjects range from historic fishing villages like Pittenweem and Crail, to the landscapes of Skye, Mull and Sutherland, with great sweeps of mountain, moorland, sky and sheep.
The style of painting is perspectively challenged and this may be the result of drawing straight lines on a drawing board, you may judge for yourself. John's first solo exhibition took place in Glasgow's West End in 2001 where most of the work was sold in the first week. This generated interest, enough to ensure a wider audience and he now exhibits throughout Scotland.
