AJ Callan paints semi-abstract sheep!

A. J. Callan is well known in the art world and his work has been collected for many years.  His whole approach to his work allows him to create memorable and fun pieces of art. His use of texture, mixed media and complimenting colour palette fuse to create tactile and atmospheric work with a hint of humour. Callan’s original art is created using a mixture of resin, paint and three dimensional objects. He recently expanded his original art portfolio with several new pieces focusing on sheep, two of which are currently on display at Artworx Gallery, Staffordshire.

A.J. was born in Glasgow in 1958. He showed a natural flair for art at a very young age. After school he spent five years studying art. He then spent the next 27 years in the world of design in Leeds based agencies. Illustration made up a large part of his work, giving him the necessary disciplines and experience he would need for the future. In 2006 he handed in his car keys and laptop, and made a career change to ‘live his dream’. Since then his published and original works have sold worldwide to collectors who share his perspective on life. A.J. wants to share with you the positive, heart warming feelings that he puts into each of his originals.

Like any artist I feel the need to express myself through the use of imagery. This is my way of interpreting the world in which I live. It helps me make sense of what I see and what I think. Sometimes I need to depict accurately every detail of what is in front of me. At other times I just let my imagination run riot and create something that couldn’t possibly exist in the real world.The contrast between the two approaches gives me plenty of scope to indulge myself during the creative process.’
