About the artist: George Birrell

Limited Edition Prints and Collectable Art Prints from Global Art Prints

Artist: George Birrell

George Birrell was born in 1950. He studied art at the Glasgow School of Art and after a career in teaching art design became a full time professional artist in 1998.

George Birrell is well known for his paintings and art prints of the architecture of Scottish east coast harbour villages. This stems from a fascination with the history and development of buildings and communities, particularly where they have grown organically and where successive generations have built something on. The randomness of the windows or building structures that have appeared where needed, rather than where planned and with no thought of symmetry. In most cases the architecture; the building, the wall, or shed, with the use of stone colours reinforces the impression of old, whilst this contrasts with the more temporary structures, the fishboxes, nets, boats, telephone boxes, gulls, flowers, flags or marker buoys, which allow him to introduce the contrast and offset of bright, primary colours. In George Birrell art prints there is a collage of artistic qualities with shape and line, colour and tone and patterns and textures.

George Birrell limited edition prints feature the imagery of the Scottish east coast architecture and they are popular because they are unmistakably Scottish. His father came from that area and when he goes east George feels he is ‘coming home'. He likes the west coast but for him the west coast colour palette and aesthetics are too lush, green and verdant.

Vigorous handling and strong design are all hallmarks of George Birrell’s limited edition prints. Simplification and stylisation, strong colour and bold composition are an emotional expression of feeling about the subject.
