John Mackie was born in Glasgow in 1953 and studied at the Glasgow School of Art between 1972-76. It was there that he was first introduced to the Scottish Colourists and the Glasgow Boys, admiring their bold use of colour and Powerful draughtsmanship. Having already been influenced by Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Cezanne and Van Gogh, John was eager to experiment with their various styles and techniques.
Mackie gained the W H Shanks award for drawing in 1976 and later received a travelling scholarship from the Scottish Arts Council (1976/77) which he used to work for a short period in America and Canada. John currently lives in West Yorkshire with his wife Vanessa and two Daughters Jade and Saffron. He has exhibited widely for over 40 years at the Royal Scottish Academy as well as in the USA, Germany, London, Dublin and Scotland.
