Angus Watt

Angus WattFrom England

"His work crosses traditional boundaries, using colour, scale and movement to transform and enhance the theatricality of a space. Responding to the elements, the flags become proud signifiers, gatherings of texture and colour, animated by wind and light." World Music Central

A self-proclaimed specialist in "pig's ear to silk purse transformations", visual artist Angus Watt will unfurl an overhead spectacle of beauty and grace when he transforms the Alexandra Gardens into a stunning 'flagscape' of shimmering colour and movement especially for the Commonwealth Games. The subtle yet spectacular impact of his flags, gorgeously arranged in large-scale installations, has made him one of the most sought after artists in the UK and Europe. His many major commissions for festivals and venues all over the world have enthralled hundreds of thousands of people with their elegance, beauty and simplicity.
