After graduating in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College and completing a Masters in Computers in Design at Middlesex University I worked as a Special Effects Artist on Hollywood feature films. The digital techniques have proved invaluable when combining hand drawn artwork with multiple layers of photographic textures or doing prep work for printmaking.
While living ‘down south’ I freelanced as a commercial artist. My work appeared in national museums including The Churchill War Rooms, on digital billboards around the world and as stage projections in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, The Southbank Centre and on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury.
I also worked with bands including The Who and Julian Cope and had work in window displays and interiors of leading high street retailers including Selfridges and DicksonCyberExpress in Hong Kong.
During this period I also lectured in several universities including Glasgow School of Art and the London College of Music & Media.
Rory Middleton lives and works in Portobello, Scotland. He studied at Leith School of Art, Edinburgh and Falmouth School of Art and received his MFA at the Glasgow School of Art in 2006.
In his work he uses a collage of elements from architecture, nature, speech and sound depicting subtly shifting and morphing landscapes and wildlife creating space in which to contemplate the world around us.
During my 15 years in the industry I have created designs for print and screen for all manner of clients, from a sole trader about to launch a business to an established multinational with a turnover of billions.
