A. J. Callan - Smart Art Galleries

'Like any artist I feel the need to express myself through the use of imagery.This is my way of interpreting the world in which I live. It helps me make sense of what I see and what I think. Sometimes I need to depict accurately every detail of what is in front of me. At other times I just let my imagination run riot and create something that couldn’t possibly exist in the real world.The contrast between the two approaches gives me plenty of scope to indulge myself during the creative process.’

Born in Glasgow in 1958, A. J. Callan has spent most of his life in the Yorkshire Pennines. A passion for art soon manifested itself at school.
Five years studying art and design led to a successful career in creative work.

After 27 years in the world of design and advertising he decided he needed to follow his dream of being a full time artist. So he took a leap into the unknown and left it all behind him-a decision he has never regretted.

Within months he was selling his unique piggy bank collection around the world through the galleries of the art publisher Washington Green.

But never being one to sit still, A. J. Callan has continued to expand his portfolio of work, all of which can now be seen here. It is for sale through this site and a selected number of galleries around the UK.

AJ has used two types of medium for his work-pastels on paper and oils on canvas. These are his favourites, though he has been known to work in acrylics, water colours and even indulged in the odd piece of sculpture!
