Bryan Angus

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.”

Hilke MacIntyre

Hilke MacIntyre was born in Germany and obtained a diploma in architecture in Kiel. She relocated to Scotland where she focuses on ceramic relief, lino/woodcut and painting. On the Art Online Gallery she says this about her work:

“I work in a simplified figurative style and enjoy using bold shapes, strong colours and patterns. The world around me, especially nature, animals and people, give me plenty ideas for pictures. Particular influences are primitive art, artists of the early 20th century and contemporary design.”
