Alexander Millar 1960 | Come Fly With Me

Alexander Millar 1960 | Come Fly With Me:
Scottish painter Alexander Millar is one of the UK's most popular contemporary artists. Born and raised in the small mining community of Springside, just
outside the town of Kilmarnock on the west coast of Scotland, Millar's
earliest memories were of his time spent in the company of old men
dressed in dark suits smoking woodbines and large missile-shaped women
decked out in big overcoats, pinnies, tartan headscarves and zipped
booties, adorned with fake fur around the top. Has gained a large following for his sometimes humorous, sometimes moving pieces featuring solitary figures. He is completely self taught, and after many years of developing his own style in art he turned to images remembered from his childhood and used the local Scottish 'Gadgies' as models in his paintings.
