Douglas Gray was born in 1947 and raised in Kinghorn, Fife, to which he has recently returned to live. He trained at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, where he was awarded a Post Diploma year in Painting. He then went on to study painting at the Royal College of Art in London, where he was awarded an M.A. In 1976 he returned to Scotland. He previously worked as a technician at Edinburgh Printmakers and has exhibited widely, in places as far afield as America and Japan. In 1990 he moved back to Kinghorn where he now has his own press. His imagery is infused with a keen awareness of social mores and pretensions, and currently focuses mainly on the towns, coasts, and seas around Fife.
