About the artist

Bruce McLean is a leading figure in the British contemporary art scene. The Scottish artist is highly regarded and his sculptures, performance art pieces and paintings have influenced artists locally and abroad. The bold, vibrant prints available from Rise Art are a must-have for serious collectors of contemporary art. What we love about these prints is not only that Bruce’s designs are eye-catching and fresh, but also, the artist has added an extra hand-finished touch to each with some paint and collage work.

Bruce began his studies at Glasgow School of Art and continued his training at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London. Over the course of his career, the artist has won a number of prestigious awards, including the John Moores Painting Prize, the Sainsbury Award for Sculpture and the Mercedes Benz Prize for painting.

Bruce’s work can be found in private and public collections worldwide. Tate Britain and the Victoria & Albert Museum are two such noteworthy collections. His work has also been chosen to decorate a new Dorchester Collection hotel in London.

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."
