Scottish printmaker Bryan Angus has been making prints since 2012. The visual artist is based in Banff on the north Aberdeenshire coast – otherwise known as the Banffshire Coast. He has been making prints since 2012 and has found what feels like an entire world of expression in two colors. His inspiration stems from the beauty of the land and the drama of the landscape where he resides. On an interview with Jackson’s Art he says this about linocutting and inspiration:
“It (Linocutting) works very well with the graphic nature of the pictures I make and my drawing skills; I enjoy the carving process, the craft skill adds a fascinating dimension to the making of an image and is very therapeutic to do; lastly, the nature of multiples means my work can be seen further and owned by more people.”
“I’m inspired by the coast where I live, the drama of the land and sea meeting. But the common themes in my work are the character of architecture, the atmosphere of weather and different light conditions and the dynamic spaces we make around buildings.”
