Stoney artists Gangnam style

A local artist is going international with two exhibitions in Asia at the same time.

Colin Brown, originally from the Highlands but who has been living in Stonehaven for the past 18 years, has two exhibitions in Asia.

One of Colin’s exhibitions is in Seoul in South Korea in the Gangnam District while the other is due to be in Singapore.

Colin became good friends with fellow artist and The Specials bassist, Horace Panter, when the latter bought a painting that Colin had done on the band.

Colin’s style features mixed media paintings that use a mixture of headlines, advertising logos and different images to make up his painting.

Colin spoke to the Leader this week and said he was thrilled at the two exhibitions: “ My work was shown through a friend and fellow artist, Horace from the Specials.the support I have had has been tremendous.

“The press coverage out there has been amazing, I am doing the Seoul exhibition as part of a group of seven artists, but the Singapore exhibition is just myself.”

Colin has some of his work on display at John Briggs Persian Rug store in Stonehaven that you can go along and see.
