Jack Morrocco Biography

Jack Morrocco

Scottish art has always had its own distinctive style with a cosmopolitan approach to European influence, yet largely inspired by its own rich artistic legacy and heritage.  This combination of traditional values and an appetite for the modern, has become central to the work of generations of celebrated Scottish painters.

>

Jack Morrocco, perhaps more than any of his immediate contemporaries, seems to have embraced the extraordinary variety of inspiration inherent within Scotland, and whilst remaining true to a proud national lineage, he has developed a powerful and effective distillation of his own. His creative output over recent years has produced an impressive body of work, which has brought him to the forefront of the new wave of Scottish colourists.

Jack’s work is widely collected, and represented within a number of major collections in the UK, and private collections worldwide. he has staged exhibitions within prestigious galleries throughout the UK, and in France and the USA.
