Dennis Buchan RSA, Cafe Ole by the Sea

The Academicians’ Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of selected paintings by the renowned Arbroath-born artist Dennis Buchan RSA (1937-2023).

Dennis Buchan’s work fused the Scottish Colourist tradition with more modern, Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. He took inspiration from landscapes and seascapes, using everyday objects to create bold juxtapositions of form and colour.

Dennis Buchan was born in Arbroath in 1937 and attended Arbroath High School before studying at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee, under Alberto Morrocco. Following art school, Dennis spent a postgraduate period at Hospitalfield, Arbroath. Dennis travelled throughout his career, making new research in such places as New York, Barcelona, Belgium, and the Netherlands. In 1965, he took up a teaching position at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, where he remained until retiring to paint full-time in 1994.
