Alan Watson

Alan Watson, a Scottish artist descended from a fishing and sea faring community created powerful and important artistic work exploring a range of themes. Much of his work comes from his connection with his sea faring ancestors, all gifted story tellers as was Alan.

Portraits of three fishermen, his grandfathers, titled 'Ancestral Tryptych' can often be viewed at the Zulu Gallery at The Scottish Fisheries Museum and online at Art UK.
