Award-winning British figurative artist

Douglas Gray's painting style reflects his background in illustration, exhibiting the artist's solid foundations in drawing and developed narrative. The artist enjoys layering his pictures with visual complexity, like his signature window panes reflecting a strong amount of detail from the outside world over top of a figure sat within an equally detailed interior scene. Gray has become known for this incredible ability to synthesize vision, thought and emotion simultaneously into a single painted image, all the while keeping viewers guessing at the full story behind each scenario.

‘My aim is to emotionally connect with the viewer through my work’ Douglas says, ‘whether they be happy, melancholic or even sad, as human beings we all experience these timeless emotions and I hope my paintings ignite people’s imagination and evoke their own personal memories’.

Douglas’s ownership of light, atmosphere, place and visual narrative all add up to truly memorable paintings which endorse his ever growing number of collectors worldwide.
