Shaun MacDonald is an artist from Nairn; his work is shown nationally and internationally, and he has work in the collections of both Robert Gordon University and the prestigious Walter Scott Group, and in many private collections.
A winner of the Anne Redpath award for painting and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Art’s Exhibition Award, Shaun lectures part-time in Fine Art at Moray School of Art, UHI. Shaun also exhibits in Glasgow with the Roger Billcliffe Gallery and in Edinburgh with the Open Eye gallery.
Realism and the digital interface are the mainstays of his practice with paintings often being autobiographical or relating to personalised narratives, historical and contextual references and popular culture tropes.
Shaun designed the festival’s 2019 programme cover - the original artwork is on display at Nairn’s Court House. In this illustrated talk, he will discuss his work and his practise as an artist.
