Arthur MacTaggart, Artist
Arthur is an untrained artist who first engaged with art during a brief prison sentence. His experiences of the legal system and incarceration provide stimulus for much of his work.
He has had work in several exhibitions, and is a member of Outside In, Arts & Health South West and the National Criminal Justice Arts Alliance.
He also works to advocate creativity, both in secure settings and beyond: He was part of an All Party Parliamentary Group that held an enquiry into the link between creativity and well-being, and is also one of the founders of The LENS (Lived Experience Network) – a group of people who promote (and have used) creativity to address issues with well-being and health.
