Biography:

Biography Brian D. Morrison was born in 1934 as the second son of the Glasgow paint and colour 
manufacturer Douglas L. Morrison. So an interest in colour mixing came early. He first studied 
interior design at the Royal College of Arts and Crafts in London, later, foreign languages at 
the Interpreter’s Institute in Munich (1962-65). 
 
After teaching English in the latter college (SDI) for some time, a more direct contact with art 
and design came back in the late seventies when he started to work freelance for several 
publishing houses in Germany 
 
This occupation, involving writing, editorship and translation for art and photography magazines, 
continued after moving from Germany to southern France in 1984. From 1998 onwards, 
Brian then progressively found more time for his personal creation. 
Understandably inspired by the visual arts throughout this 35-year occupation, a deeper interest 
in montage/collage, surrealism and graphics developed. In a way, it can be seen as a return to 
design but, after the turn of the century, the focus shifted more towards abstract art and modern 
calligraphy. One can still notice, here and there, a special interest in lettering and the written word 
within works of art. This inclination has been diversely called “Word into Art”, “The Word as 
Image”, “Les mots et les images”, etc.
