Iain Faulkner was born in Glasgow in 1973 where he was raised and educated. As a child Faulkner was encouraged and guided by his father, an electrical engineer, for whom drawing was both job and pastime. He went on to Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1996 with a BA (Honours) Degree in Fine Art. Faulkner is, however, largely self taught and from the start of his professional career chose to follow the difficult and demanding path of figurative painting. Iain now enjoys international reputation, resulting in numerous sell out solo shows in London, Spain, Italy and New York, a clear indication of the public’s appreciation of his work. He also has an ever increasing numbre of collectors for his prints with many editions now sold out.
Faulkner’s paintings are about capturing calm and contemplative moments, intimate exchanges and stillness. His subdued and harmonious palette combined with his tight composition emphasises the introspection and inner reflection in his work.
