Norman Gilbert (b.1926 Trinidad - d. 2019 Scotland) was one of those special artists who found a distinct immediately identifiable visual language. With it he describes a life and its embraces, quiet domestic afternoons seeped in a patchwork of pattern, colour and memories.


After studying at Glasgow School of Art, Norman Gilbert widely exhibited across the UK, with work held in numerous public and private collections. Having featured in The Times, Vogue and The Scotsman and the main subject of two BBC documentaries, he leaves behind an extraordinary legacy of a life in colour.
