James Fullarton

Artist Biography

For nearly two decades we at Thompson's Gallery have exhibited paintings by celebrated Modern Scottish Colourist James Fullarton. He studied in the 1960's at the Glasgow School of Art under acclaimed artist David Donaldson whose own work 'exhibited energy and joy' that is an undeniable influence on Fullarton. Donaldson was not the only celebrated artist teaching during this time as Alexander (Sandy) Goudie, who the Scottish Herald referred to as 'one of the best-known and most talented painters to have graced the Scottish art scene in decades' was a tutor. Under such influence it is clear that James Fullarton would and has followed in his own large footsteps.
