In your bag number 106, Alan Campbell
Todays bag comes to us from Scotland and shows us how an artist develops his ideas. So let’s see what Alan has in his bag…

My name is Alan Campbell, I’m a 24 year old Scottish artist based in Glasgow, Scotland experimenting with Photography, Printmaking, Painting and writing.
My current art practice involves taking atmospheric photographs late at night, then I take short stories and anecdotes that I’ve written and reset them within my own photographs, The writing itself is often based on a train of thought with mild humour from there I develop the work into paintings on glass and screenprints. It slowly developed into a process of feeding and exorcising my own neurosis by pulling in through interpretations and media.

I regularly exhibit work and publish limited edition screen prints which I sell online.

I always have at least one book with me, I read a lot of books from a publishing company called open letter books who translate and publish books into English for the first, providing me with often unusual books to read.

Then there is a variant of pens and pencils for sketching out ideas, Sketch pads and a Multipurpose cloth that comes in handy frequently.
