Trevor Guthrie was born in Fife, Scotland, although his family relocated to Canada when he was young. He rarely played with other children; he was content by himself, drawing on brown paper grocery bags. Guthrie’s work focuses on the moment of recognition, the confrontation between viewer and subject. He also confronts his demons in his work and exposes them to the world.
Trevor is primarily influenced by the works of famed German artist Hans Holbein the Younger.
