Born 1961
Nationality Scottish
Birth place Glasgow

Calum Colvin was born in Glasgow and studied art in Dundee and London, before coming to prominence in the mid-1980s. His early interest in sculpture led him to develop his unique style of 'constructed photography', creating small sets from everyday objects to resemble domestic interiors. More recently he has used digital technology to generate images that often ask uneasy questions about what makes one truly Scottish. He has exhibited extensively in Europe and the United States and has worked on a number of commissions by the National Galleries of Scotland.
