Colin Kirkpatrick – Artist

Photo of Colin KirkpatrickBorn 1963, he attended Stromness Acadamy, where he was fortunate enough to have a Burra man as an excellent art teacher. Later studied at Grays School of Art. Now lives and works in Stromness. In 2003 contributed to Zenomap : new work from Scotland for the Venice Biennale. Short listed for the New Shetland Museum & Archive public art project. Frequent visitor to Shetland, though never made it to Foula yet. Which is strange given his fondness for everything Wild West. Maybe it’s the lack of troot lochs oot there.
