Brian Crawford Young is a visual artist living in the North of Scotland. He is a graduate of the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), obtaining his BA Fine Art (Honours) from Moray School of Art in 2008. His works have been exhibited in New York, and in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, and Inverness in Scotland.
Stylistically Brian is an expressionist painter whose work is concerned with the way surface and colour interact on the picture plane. This usually, but not always, takes him into the realms of non-objective abstraction. His main artistic concerns are centred on colour and surface, and the creation of spatial effects using these two attributes alone.
