Archie Dunbar McIntosh RSW RGI

Archibald Dunbar McIntosh RGI RSW (b.1936) is an award winning Scottish artist who fondly depicts the Scottish isles, the coastline and childhood memories of trips aboard the River Clyde paddlesteamers.

Archibald Dunbar McIntosh was born in Glasgow and studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1953 to 1957.  He is member of the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts and the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours. He has won many awards across the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts,  Royal Scottish Academy, Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts. His paintings are held in private and corporate collections worldwide and with public bodies including Glasgow Museum and Art Gallery, Edinburgh City Council, Argyle Education Authority and Strathclyde Regional Council. Since graduation Dunbar McIntosh has exhibited regularly in the UK and abroad.

Over time I have worked on more complex images inspired by the marine environment of the Firth of Clyde, the mountains and lochs of the west coast and the stone-walled harbours of Fife.  My paintings explore the figurative geometric shapes of harbours and boats, flags and beacons, bells, buoys, coils of rope, lobster creels and crates full of silver fish.
