Glasgow Print Studio is delighted to present the first showing of 12 new and exclusive unique prints by John Byrne.
Mainly self-portraits, these exquisite works showcase Byrne’s fluid draughtsmanship and his ability to underscore a raw directness with typical humour.
Byrne, the revered Scottish artist and playwright, has been using the Glasgow Print Studio facilities since the 1970s, publishing a significant and diverse body of work in print. His work is held in major collections in Scotland and abroad, with several of his paintings hanging in The Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, the Museum of Modern Art and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow.
