The relationship between art and fashion is an historic and exciting one. Fashion students who are seeking inspiration, developing and interpreting 'Tropical' and 'Exotic' themes would really benefit from a visit to Edinburgh's National Gallery on Princes Street.
Peter Doig is a contemporary artist with a unique, prolific and eclectic output. Having lived in Scotland, Canada and Trinidad, he melds colour and exotic landscape with figurative elements on huge canvases. There is both a vibrant energy and a quiet stillness to his work with many intriguing and ghostly palms and children throughout. The exhibition is on until 3 November 2013.
