Alan Davie

Born: 1920, UK, Scotland, Grangemouth   Died: 2014

Painter, printmaker and jazz musician. Trained at Edinburgh College of Art, 1938-40. Served in the Second World War, 1941-45. He worked as a jewellery maker, 1949-53, before teaching at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, 1953-56. Inspired by the CoBrA movement and African and Pacific art, he painted oils of abstract forms and symbols, particularly circles and crosses, in a spatial format. His later work became more figurative and increasingly surreal
