About the Artist

Kevin Low, born the only son of a handsome naval gunner and mercurial factory worker, Kevin grew up in isolated cottages and hamlets in that fertile triangle of land marked out by the pink sandstone towns of Montrose, Brechin and Forfar. Something that still tints everything he does.

One time library assistant, harbour security officer (with his own torch, stiff peaked hat and radio) and Pitch and Put attendant, Kevin left Angus to study photography in Edinburgh. There he bought himself a Hofner semi-acoustic guitar and formed a band. He began photographing the music scene in Scotland, having work published in NME and Sounds etc before beginning a career in theatre photography. He was commissioned by everyone from Scottish Opera to the hugely influential ‘Postcard Records of Scotland’... then, he’d had enough.

He wrote a novel about death, murder maybe, and definitely sex.  Set in 1960’s Brechin it’s called ‘Slippery Fish’ and is, as yet, unpublished.

Kevin started painting in 2013. He never really wanted to be a photographer is the honest truth, he just thought it would be easier than painting.

Over the past three years he has had two solo exhibitions in Sydney, Australia; ‘Golden Age’ in 2020 and ‘Everything Matters’ in 2022. His previous solo shows in the UK, have been ‘Women and Men’ at Edinburgh’s Union Galley and ‘Honeymoon’ at the Stallan-Brand Gallery in Glasgow.

Kevin lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.
