Biography

Born in Inverness, artist Jamie Kane moved to Glasgow in 2008.  After studying at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, he went on to gain a degree from the GSA's Department of Sculpture & Environmental Art.

During his time in Glasgow, Jamie exhibited at the Glasgow Project Rooms, Transmission, Universal Studios, and at the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik in Berlin.  In 2013 he was selected for a graduate residency at Hospitalfield House and in 2014 acted as a committee member for the Pipe Factory.

An extremely talented and motivated artist, Jamie has demonstrated clear ambition to engage in his professional development.  

In 2014, he succesfully underwent a rigorous selection process and was offered a place on the Alternative Educational Programme at Rupert Arts & Education Centre, Lithuania. This dynamic centre provides the opportunity for young artists to pursue their self-directed practice, but with mentoring and support from an impressive selection of international artists, curators and critics working at the highest level.

How the Award Helped

Jamie received a Dewar Arts Award to support him in developing his practice at the Rupert Arts & Education Centre.



"The opportunity to take part in the programme at Rupert allowed me the time, space and support to realise a large body of new work, and marks a major development in my practice.  I would not have been able to have this experience without the support of the Dewar Arts Awards."
