Born in 1948 in Maryhill, Glasgow, John Lowrie Morrison (Jolomo) is now one of Scotland’s most loved artists. Having studied art at Glasgow School of Art from 1967-1971, he went on to undertake postgraduate studies at GSA in 1971-1972 and then a Dip Ed in 1972-1973. For more than 25 years John pursued a successful career in art education from his base in Argyll, West Scotland, rising to Principal Teacher of Art at Lochgilphead High School and Art Adviser to Strathclyde Region. Since his first solo show in 1976 Jolomo has become a highly successful artist. John has become best known for his painting of the West of Scotland, filled with colour and passion.
The exhibition of paintings by Jolomo is currently on view at the Glasgow Gallery.
