Scott Plear – Artist Biography

Scott Plear

Contemporary artist, Scott Plear, was born in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1952. He received his Bachelor's degree in Science and Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia in 1976.

For Plear, the process of abstract and non-objective imagery occured through an initual experiment with watercolour: "Painting has been of intense interest to me since a very early age... My first painting experience was with watercolour. This work led me in a natural way to acrylic paint, which allowed me to play with a wider scale and texture range".

Plear's vibrant and luminous paintings that have been celebrated and exhibited throughout Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom to resounding praise.

Plear's work can be found in both public and corporate collections.
