Shaun MacDonald


Researcher profile

Shaun MacDonald studied drawing and painting at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen at a time when it was still a very traditional school with discipline specific departments where the emphasis was more on ‘know-how' rather than ‘knowledge'.

Shaun regularly exhibits in open submission exhibitions such the Society of Scottish Artists, The Royal Glasgow Institute, The Royal Scottish Academy, Visual Arts Scotland and The Royal Society of Scottish Painters in Watercolour and The Discerning Eye.


Shaun's current practice has seen him develop a methodology that goes beyond the traditional directly observed still life and is more hybrid in nature as it incorporates photography and digital editing as well as direct observation. Shaun's been painting contemporary and retro toys is this manner for the last few years with an increasing degree of exposure and commercial success.
