Wilson McLean

Broadway Musicals: Oklahoma! (1993)

Born in Scotland, Wilson McLean began his career at the age of 15 in a London silkscreen shop. After attending art school at night, he worked as a freelance artist in advertising and publishing and became familiar with the work of American illustrators. Inspired to move to New York in 1966, he has since received virtually every professional award and honor in the field of illustration, including a prestigious Clio for excellence in advertising. His artwork appears on four U.S. stamps and is included in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution and the London Transport Museum. He has also taught aspiring artists at the School of Visual Arts and at Syracuse University.
