Jack Morrocco, one of Scotland’s most successful artists, shares many influences with his famous uncle Alberto Morrocco, but retains the ability to impart his own individual style. The strong design elements and pure bold colour of his still-life subjects also owe a great deal to the Scottish Colourists.
