Scott Carruthers

Born in 1975, Scott Carruthers is originally from Norwich, England, and now living and working in Perth, Scotland since 2005.

A self taught artist, Scott has been developing his unique style of paintings since 2007. Unable to categorise his work into any specific genre, he happened upon the phrase 'Sui Generis'; Latin for 'of its own kind' or 'Unique in its characteristics'. This seemed fairly apt!

Scott signed with renowned international publishers Washington Green Fine Art in 2008 which gave him the springboard to progress with his career and eventually turned Full-Time Professional artist in August 2009.

Now working independently and represented by galleries around the UK, Scott's work is regularly exhibited in Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, Manchester and Toronto, Canada.

Scott continues to support numerous charities with his artwork, including Great Ormond Street Hospital, The Mo Farah Foundation, Joss Searchlight, Art in Healthcare, The Childrens Trust, TOMS One for One and more.

Other Information

I paint observations of life, particularly the adventures of childhood, the experiences of growing up along the life journey, and carving out a story. I'm fascinated with the use of metaphors to illustrate these stories, which can allow for different interpretations from one person to the next.

Painting the characters in a naive, cartoon like style helps represent the childhood aspect of the work, adding humour and accentuating the innocence of children. My paintings are thought provoking and allow the viewer to get lost in their imagination and maybe take them back to a simpler time.

I like to keep the background clean and sparse, free of any real landscape. It means the essence of the narrative, often with the use of objects and symbols, and the children themselves are the focus of the viewer's attention.
