  • Biography
Morgan is a multi-talented and prolific artist working in the Project Ability Aspire studios since 1991. In 2010 Morgan painted a large mural on the walls of the Collins Gallery in Glasgow. This was the first time Cameron worked straight on the wall to create a large scale mural. This was received very well and lead Project Ability and Cameron to work on several more murals, including Cameron’s Way: Coast to Coast for Generation festival in 2014, which firmly established his standing as a contemporary artist.
In 2016 Cameron was awarded an Unlimited commission which enabled him to make two new bodies of work; TV Classics Part 1 and Put your sweet lips closer to the phone. 2016 also saw Cameron awarded a lifetime fellowship to the RSA, with work exhibited at several different venues, exhibitions and festivals around the U.K.
In 2018, Creative Scotland awarded Morgan a grant to pursue collaborative partnerships with other contemporary artists and develop his skills, which resulted in exhibitions in Manchester and Glasgow.
Since then Morgan has continued to receive grants and critical acclaim for the wide range of work he produces. He has exhibited worldwide and continues to be sought after for commissions and opportunities to exhibit. Morgan’s work has successfully crossed over from the disability art world to the contemporary art world. His playful aesthetic and subject matter keep his work light and fun while at the same time being a powerful voice for the disability art world and beyond.
