Archie McIntosh studied at the Glasgow School of Art from 1953 to 1957. Following that he taught for a number of years before becoming President of Glasgow School of Art in 1968. Today Archie McIntosh is one of the most original, professional painters working in Scotland.
His paintings possess an unusual combination of the abstract and naive styles with a strong enduring appeal. Archie successfully creates a parallel world of distorted perspectives and fanciful motifs, which fascinate and entertain the viewer. Archie Dunbar McIntosh paintings have regularly featured in exhibitions worldwide.
