George McLean

1939 -
Origin: Canada
Born: September 18, 1939, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

George McLean was born on September 18, 1939, in Toronto; he grew up in a low-income section of the city and received his only formal art training at Northern Vocational School. While still a teenager, McLean attended some drawing classes at the Royal Ontario Museum where he met Terry Shortt, one of Canada's premier wildlife artists. Shortt introduced the young artist to Bruno Liljefors's work, and McLean cites that artist's dramatic and evocative compositions as having a "profound effect" on his own personal style.
