Archibald ('Archie') Forrest (Scottish, born 1950)
Archie Forrest studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1969 to 1973. He taught there for seven years before giving up teaching in 1985 to be a full-time artist. His work has appeared regularly in the annual shows of both the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts, to which he was elected in 1988, and the Royal Scottish Academy. A painter and a sculptor, Forrest is essentially viewed as a colourist working in the subdued earthy harmonies of the Glasgow school. Cézanne and Matisse are major inspirations to the artist.
