Image: Banchory Still Life, 22”x28”, oil on canvas by Anthony Armstrong
"As a child I was encouraged to make pictures. My imagery comes from life experiences, from recollections of my past, stories my mother told, religious inspiration and my rich cultural heritage. For better or worse these aspects of my life have become the foundation of my art. The cultural inheritance brings a diverse richness to my art and provides me with an instinctive working process. I then translate these experiences and diversity into visual expression. My interest is not only in conveying to the viewer my personal feelings, but also our common humanity."

Anthony Armstrong is a prolific painter who attended the Glasgow School of Art (1953 – 57) under David Donaldson. His work covers a wide spectrum. Portraiture and landscape, with cityscapes being of special interest - still life's and places where people come together in the streets and cafe culture; an abiding interest in the human figure and an understanding of human nature.
Armstrong’s work over the years has reflected his international travels, his passion for the Scottish landscape and his understanding of the human nature. Together his works make a rich and varied oeuvre which appeals to both private art lover and the professional collector.
His evocative scenes of Scotland and his captivating nudes grace the walls of many of Scotland's country houses and hang in public collections including the The Royal Concert Hall (Glasgow), The Bank of Scotland (Edinburgh) and The Hunterian Art Gallery (Glasgow) and Glasgow Museums.
