About the artist
well known for his vivid, passionate depictions of Scotland's west coast, John 'Jolomo' Morrison is a much-loved figure in the Scottish art scene. Born in 1948, Jolomo lived in Glasgow until adulthood, refining his expressionist style at the Glasgow School of Art from 1967 to 1972. He then transitioned into teaching art for over two decades at Lochgilphead High School and served as an art adviser for Strathclyde. John became a full-time artist in 1996, earning an honorary degree from Abertay University and an OBE in 2011. Today he vibrant creations, inspired by artists like Kokoschka, Chagall, and Soutine, fly off the shelves to a diverse clientele, including celebrities. He paints about 100 pieces monthly in his studio, Jolomo pours history, folklore, and geology into his works, much like the vibrant colours he splashes onto his canvas.
