A A Watson

Scottish artist A A Watson is known for his darkly humorous works of art, which blend the old and the new for a unique, contemporary aesthetic.

With a successful career in the corporate world behind him, and passion for travelling under his belt, it's no surprise that Watson's art should be suffused with a range of diverse influences, combining varied genres and styles throughout his oeuvre. But perhaps the single, running thread in all of Watson's work is its ability to make the viewer smile: overlaid with words and phrases in gold leaf lettering, his pieces are both comic and cathartic, relatable and also approachable, and utterly mesmerising, with a bold, visual language all of their own.
