Note: Described on STV as one of Scotland’s up and coming artists, Graeme Sharp has already achieved considerable success in the art world — his stunning portrait work is in high demand among many collectors. Graeme began his artistic career with a hugely successful degree show when he graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 1995. Now, his work is held in numerous private collections around the world, including the collections of several Scottish celebrities. He is known throughout Scotland and is widely exhibited at private art galleries, Glasgow Art Fair and other events. Graeme works in dramatic, abstract forms and colours, using palette knives to create instantly expressive marks in vivid hues. His extreme colours and textures are kept in a careful balance, and result in a completely and uniquely arresting style of artwork. The resulting portraits are filled with light and passion, going beyond the surface of the subject to the energy within.


A condition report is offered as an indication of any issues visible to the naked eye. As none of our staff is a professional conservator or restorer, buyers must satisfy themselves in respect of condition and McTear’s can provide contact details of local professionals who can provide fully comprehensive expert reports, usually for a modest charge. The condition report does not form part of any contract between McTear's and the buyer, and all lots are offered "as is" in accordance with our Terms of Business available on our website.
