Alexander Millar Artworks

tional and although I grew up in the 60’s era it felt more like the 40’s. My formative years were spent in the company of old men dressed in dark suits smoking woodbines partnered with large missile-shaped women decked out in headscarves and pinnies.Alexander Millar was born in 1960 & grew up & spent he’s informative years in a small mining village near Glasgow, Scotland. He moved to Newcastle-Upon-Tyne after finishing school aged 16, where he tried various jobs before becoming a professional artist in 1988. Both these facts would be the inspiration for his paintings.

Some twenty years later and Alex has become one the UK's most recognisable and highly collectable: limited edition print and originals artist, with his unmistakable imagery and fun Northern characters.

The pictures he paints represent memories of his youth spent around these so-called ‘gadgies’; the characters featured in his art. He also gains inspiration from his now home town of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where he claims there are many ‘gadgies’ for him to paint. A gadgie is a Northern England and Scottish term used to describe men from an older generation, dressing in a particular way, perhaps in grey and wearing a flat cap.

For a self-taught artist, Alexander Millar has accomplished much for himself & he continues to develop and evolve his artwork. Alex is also known for 2 distinctive limited edition types, his colourful bold & yet plain background imagery and his smaller pencil sketches, both instantly recognizable in a gallery as his work.

Over the twenty years that he has been a professional artist, his fan base has grown steadily and his paintings are extremely popular among people of all ages because most people can identify with the character, as it reminds them of their grandparents or fathers, or someone they knew from their youth.
