Angus Wilson was born and raised in Scotland and has lived in numerous cities throughout Britain. He has worked as a professional artist his entire career (26+ yrs), however his work has been varied and few would say his path to a fine art career was by a traditional route. Originally attending art college in the disciplines of photography, film, and animation, Angus then pursued a career in television and video, as well as the computer entertainment market. Angus worked as a director, producer, editor, and animator, winning international awards for his animation and entertainment products.
Throughout this period of his life, traditional painting functioned as a sideline. However in 2004, with growing popularity in his work, Angus made the decision to pursue his fine art career full time. In lighter moments he jokes that his skills have regressed, from cutting edge multi-million dollar CG animation projects to "merely" pushing paint around a canvas!
However there's nothing "mere" about the artists work. It is reminiscent of many post-impressionists, such as Matisse and Cezanne, yet there's a contemporary underpinning that gives his work a powerful kick of originality justifying his ever growing success and loyal following.
In 2007 Angus relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, he works mainly in oil and acrylic. He has and continues to be involved in numerous shows, displaying work internationally. His work is collected and held by museums, corporations and collectors worldwide.
