At the age of 27 McLean was awarded his first exhibition at Tate Britain, and numerous international shows have followed. His work is in private and public collections worldwide, including Tate Britain, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the National Museum of Modern Art, Edinburgh.

The Insider Rebecca Gordon says:

"Bruce Mclean is one of the major leading figures in Contemporary Art. He has obtained international recognition for his paintings and prints. His bold, confident approach to printmaking has proved extremely influential to his contemporaries and a younger generation of artists. The luminous colours and organic shapes give these works a fantastic expressive quality. Like so many great works of art, images of these prints sadly do not do them justice, they are truly great works, which in real life have a wonderful, vibrant energy that would suit any setting."
