artist's photo

Alistair was born in 1945, Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, attended the Glasgow School of Art (1962-66), and since then has taught art and design at every level and also practised textile design, graphic design, printmaking, photography, drawing and painting and is represented in public, corporate and private collections world wide. He is also a well known writer, art historian and independent curator with publications in many languages.

Attracted by the unique landscape of Mid Wales, he came to live here in 1974 and, amongst many distinctions gained since, became the first Professor of Art in the history of Wales. He also instigated the new School of Art and the School of Art Gallery & Museum which opened in Aberystwyth in 1994. In 1996 he performed the first of his solo stage shows: An Evening with Eugenie Strong in Rome, followed in 2001 by autobiographical tales in the form of Brief Exposure. Several versions of these have been touring since.
