Colin Moore was born on the Clyde Coast in Scotland in 1949. He studied architecture in Glasgow, and worked as an architect till 1992. Between 1992 and 2004 he was a creative director with a number of international design and branding consultancies and since 2004 has concentrated on painting and printmaking. He has lived in Spain and Venezuela, in London for sixteen years until 2013, and currently lives in Dorset.
He paints in oil and makes prints using a multi-block linocut technique. The work is mostly British landscape, often coastal subjects. He has contributed to group exhibitions as a member of Southbank Printmakers Association, Greenwich Printmakers Association, with the London Printmakers group, and to numerous group shows in commercial galleries and public exhibition spaces in the UK.
In 2013, Colin completed a large mural commission for Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital Trust. Consisting of 68 glazed panels on the exterior of the new Kidney Centre in Long Lane, London, the work was produced digitally and carried out in translucent adhesive vinyl. This commission also included two wall murals for the reception area and a selection of prints for the treatment areas. He is currently working on another public mural project. Commissioned by Ted Baker for Hilton Hotels, the work will be installed in the reception area of the new Bournemouth Hilton which is due to open in October 2015.
Colin is the author of “Propaganda Prints, art in the service of social and political change”, which was published by Bloomsbury in August 2010. He speaks from time to time on the subject of propaganda art - in September 2014 at the Welsh Regional Print Centre and most recently at the British Museum in February 2015.
