hamish kallin

Pen, ink, and sometimes a computer

Hamish draws in his spare time. He tends to stick to black ink on white paper. As an urban geographer by day, his drawings are usually haunted by cities that nobody has ever been to. These cities are usually characterized by a certain unsettling violence. Small birds on rooftops offer some respite. He is deeply inspired by 20th century woodcuts and the scratchier works of Mervyn Peake. As well as original drawings, high-quality prints of earlier works will be available. His drawings are also the public face of Edinburgh-based band New Urban Frontier, and copies of the band-related artwork will be on display, with copies available. The Colonies exhibition will be the first time he has ever exhibited his work.
