George is a painter and printmaker whose world travels have given him an international reputation. He trained at Edinburgh College of Art in the sixties before going to Hornsey College of Art, (at that time a centre for new thinking and radical ideas in visual education). Subsequently he took a postgraduate degree at Edinburgh University, examining the theory that underlies the practice of teaching art.
An enthusiastic traveler, he has drawn inspiration from cultures in such diverse countries as Mexico, China,Thailand, Japan and Australia. George’s early influences of the vivid colours, textures and patterns of his Indian childhood have remained indelible in his work. Always there is a spirit of experimentation, private myth, and a search for new kinds of mark making
His work can be seen in public and private collections in UK and abroad, including the V&A, London, Aberdeen Art Gallery, CAC Edinburgh, Miro Foundation, Spain, University of Edinburgh, Leeds City Council, University of Central Florida, ICI, and the BBC. He exhibits annually at the Royal Scottish Academy and Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour.
