George Donald was born in India in 1943, into a colonial family towards the end of British colonial rule. His family moved to northeast Scotland when he was young, and the contrast between the nostalgic vision of the land of his birth and the harsh climate of his upbringing has profoundly influenced his work. He studied at the Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh University.

He has worked as lecturer in drawing, painting and printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art and Director of the Centre for Continuing Studies, which he co-founded in 1999. During his career he has travelled extensively to Japan, Korea, China, the United States and the United Arab Emirates. His artwork reflects his profound interest in Asian cultures. He is a member of the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour. He is currently adjunct professor to the art department of the University of Central Florida, Orlando, and Honorary Professor at the Maktoum Institute, Dundee.

His awards include the Sir William Gillis Bequest in 2003 and the Scottish Arts Club award in 2006. His work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions across Scotland.
