Brian D. Morrison was born in 1934 as the second son of the Glasgow paint and colour manufacturer Douglas L. Morrison. So an interest in colour mixing came early. He first studied interior design at the Royal College of Arts and Crafts in London, later, foreign languages at the Interpreter’s Institute in Munich.
After teaching English in the latter college (SDI) for some time, a more direct contact with art and design came back in the late seventies when he started to work freelance for several publishing houses in Germany.
This occupation, involving writing, editorship and translation for art and photography magazines, continued after moving from Germany to southern France in 1984. From 1998 onwards, Brian then progressively found more time for his personal creation.
Understandably inspired by the visual arts throughout this 35-year occupation, a deeper interest in collage, surrealism and graphics developed. In a way, it can be seen as a return to design but, after the turn of the century, the focus shifted more towards abstract art..
