The French artist is André Levicky, from Léchère, known as the ‘Painter of the Marshes’. He was born in Lyon in 1931 of Russian and Czechoslovakian parentage. His work, influenced by the Impressionists, particularly Cezanne, is renowned in France and throughout Europe and Scotland. It is moody but harmonious, bold yet nostalgic.
Scottish artist Jonathan Hood, from Dundee is well known in the east of Scotland. He is influenced by Picasso, John Bellany, Warhol, Frances Bacon, Banksy, Carivagio, Braque, German Expressionism, Kandinsky, and Stanley Donwood. He has always been attracted to music, has played his guitar in several groups and has written over 50 songs.
His work is very tender and shows the gentle side of human relationships.
