Colin Ian Christie


I studied at Edinburgh College of Art and the Glasgow School of Art. I went on to work in Graphics and Architecture until 1984 when I changed career and joined staff at the then Napier College in Edinburgh. I lectured in Interior Design, Computer Aided Design, Graphics and Technology until 2001. From then until 2006 I worked freelance producing all manner of computer generated graphics and visualisations for Scottish and London based commercial clients. In 2006 I finally set aside my Apple computer for an easel and recaptured the joy of painting. I exhibit in many Scottish Galleries and paint commissions in a variety of genre.

Artist Statement
Painting is a mystery in the true sense of the word, something like alchemy. Film and photography may have supplanted painting in the modern consciousness but in truth neither comes even close to the beauty of painting.
