Biography-Angus McEwan, RWS, NWS, AWI, RGI, RSW, IMWA, SDWS

“I work with a series of unique techniques especially created by myself to portray crumbling facades, worn, decrepit old doors and windows with an attention to detail verging on hyper realism that masks a fascination for abstract qualities inherent in the subject matter.

Angus McEwan was born in Dundee, Scotland and studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College Art, graduating in Fine Art and printmaking with a Post Graduate Diploma in the same discipline. He also has a Merit in a teaching Certificate- Post Graduate Certificate in Secondary Education, Scotland.

Angus was elected to the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours, (RSW) in 1995 and in 2012 a full member of the Royal Watercolour Society, (RWS).
