1889 - 1972 (Scotland)

Born Louis Freeman in Glasgow, Scottie Wilson was a jack-of-all-trades who ended up in Canada after World War 1. It was here that his curious fountain pen doodles first emerged, blossoming into an opus of fantastical graphics and autobiographical faces (known as Evils and Greedies). Greatly admired by the surrealists and others, Wilson became a household name, known for flogging his drawings outside whatever art gallery dared represent him.
