Scott Naismith is one of Scotland’s most exciting young contemporary artists. From an early age Naismith demonstrated a great talent for painting. With the ambition to become an artist, Scott studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. In June 2000 he left with a BDes in Illustration and printmaking.
Since graduating Scott has been a full time artist. Much of his time is spent traveling around the country looking for inspiration for another take on the Scottish landscape. The many lochs, glens and isles of the West coast are amongst his favorite subject matter for his vibrant and atmospheric oils.
Recent success has led Scott to becoming one of the top selling Scottish contemporary artists, his artwork hangs in private collections across the UK, Europe, USA, Australia and Asia.
‘Many of my studio paintings I describe as painting from an ‘experience’ rather than ‘memory’. Memory would imply one occasion whereas an experience encompasses a number of memories from a particular journey. Many of my recent paintings deal with diffused light and the way it filters down to the reflective water creating crackling bursts of colour.’
