Douglas Gray was born in Harrogate in 1965. He began his professional artistic career in the study of illustration, enjoying significant success over a 20 year period with clients including Saatchi and Saatchi, Warner Brothers and Universal Studios.
Preferring to concentrate on fine art Douglas now specialises in contemporary figurative, cityscape and marine paintings. In 2013 he was elected a full member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists (RSMA).
Douglas is well-known for his wonderful marine subjects all around the English coast, often with dramatic compositions looking directly into the light, with a gorgeous mix of fine detail and loose passages. But he also loves painting figures in various situations, caught in fleeting moments of conversations or in coffee bars or on street corners, painted with the same, wonderful painterly brushmarks of a master technician.
Douglas’s paintings are a joy to behold and we are thrilled to have his dazzling paintings on our gallery walls.
