Biography

Alex Boyd

Alex Boyd was born in Germany in 1984, and grew up on the West Coast of Scotland. Educated at the University of Glasgow, his work has been widely exhibited with solo exhibitions at the Scottish Parliament, and at prestigious venues such as the Royal Scottish Academy. He is perhaps best known for his collaboration 'Sonnets' with Poet Laureate Edwin Morgan, and for his landscape work with Victorian processes such as wet-plate collodion.

In 2012 Boyd was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Art (FRSA). He has worked alongside photographers such as Rankin, and Japanese master Takeshi Shikama. His work is held in several national collections such as the National Gallery of Scotland, the Royal Scottish Academy, as well as private collections across the world.
