Colin McCallum was born in Glasgow, Scotland, educated in London. He has lived and worked in Barcelona, Spain since 2002. Recent works reference hotels, airports, malls and pools - the artificiality of man-made structures. From satellite dishes to pools, these elements of the modern landscape are connected in the mind of the viewer. Different techniques are used for specific images, the medium must relate to the subject. Rather than illustrate, he makes a visual equivalent of the emotions and ideas related to each. Although these paintings can be viewed as abstract they are strongly derived from reality. I have exhibited with the London based Bicha Gallery and shown extensively internationally. His works are collected in New York, Toronto, Singapore and Europe, both in private and corporate collections.
