Artist Steven Campbell has died at the age of 53 after suffering a ruptured appendix.
Steven Campbell's work hangs in a number of public galleries
He was one of the well-known group of artists, dubbed the New Glasgow Boys, who studied together at Glasgow School of Art.
Mr Campbell, whose work hangs in a number of public collections, started out as a steelworker.
After spending seven years as a fitter and engineer, he decided to try his hand at art.
His time at Glasgow School of Art was followed by a stint in New York as a Fulbright scholar.
Mr Campbell's early work took the form of installation and performance art - elements which later appeared in his distinctive paintings.
He was labelled one of the New Glasgow Boys along with Peter Howson, Ken Currie and Adrian Wisniewski, but he did not take to the term and the four never worked together.
Mr Campbell, who was born in Glasgow in 1953, spent almost a decade in a self-imposed exile, when he nearly gave up painting.
However, he returned five years ago to produce a critically acclaimed show at Edinburgh's Talbot Rice Gallery.
He died in hospital on Wednesday night due to complications from a ruptured appendix.
His wife Carol was at his side.
