Al Watt was born in 1965 in Aberdeen, Scotland.  He moved to Canada as a child, growing up on a strawberry farm in Guelph, Ontario.  He began painting as a teenager and attended Otis College of Art in Los Angeles.  His art has been shown at numerous galleries in LA including Perrell Fine Arts and Galleries Sommerlath.  He works in oil, while also using graphite, crayon, oil stick and even gesso on a painting’s surface to create stark contrasts.  His work is typically heavily layered with the suggestion of words scrawled repeatedly across the surface.
