Jack Vettriano

Born in Fife in 1951, Jack Vettriano has emerged from the unlikely background of an early working life in the Scottish coalfields to become one of Britain’s best known contemporary artists; he is entirely self taught. Jack left school at the age of sixteen and became a mining engineer, then for his twenty-first birthday a girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints and from then on, he spent much of his spare time teaching himself to paint. In 1989 he offered two works to the Royal Scottish Academy’s annual exhibition; both were accepted and sold on the first day. The following year, an equally enthusiastic reaction greeted the three paintings, which he entered for the prestigious Summer Exhibition at London’s Royal Academy. In the last nine years interest in, and desire for his work, has grown rapidly. There have been sell-out solo exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Johannesburg, Hong Kong and New York. Vettriano’s paintings can be found in private collections worldwide. In 2003 Jack Vettriano was awarded an Honorary doctorate from St Andrew’s University and an OBE for services to the visual Arts. He has studios in Scotland and in London.
