Biography

Ross grew up in Clackmannanshire, in the Central Lowlands.  He moved to Dundee to study at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, where he received a first class BA(Hons) in Fine Art in 2008 and a Masters of Fine Art with Distinction in 2010.

Now living in Edinburgh, Ross is represented by the EB&Flow Gallery in London.  Over the past two years he has exhbited at a number of shows and has garnered praise from prestigious institutions such as the Royal Scottish Academy and Saatchi Gallery, as well as from private collectors.  He has earned a reputation as being a truly talented painter with a promising career ahead of him.

 

 

How the Award Helped

Ross has received a Dewar Arts Award to help him realise his ambitions for his first solo show. 

Inspired by his work exploring the derelict St Peter's Seminary in Glasgow, Ross will create a new series of 10 to 12 large scale paintings.  The solo show will take place at the EB&Flow Gallery in Shoreditch, London.

 



Gaining assistance from the Dewar Arts award will be a major factor in the realisation of this project, allowing me to make the most of this important opportunity to exhibit at a national level at this early stage in my career.
