Featured artist – Conor Harrington

I’ve been a huge fan of his work for quite some years now. Most people into what has now become widely known as street art will know Conor Harrington’s work. People into painting, especially figurative painting, should be aware of him too. Conor hails from Cork, Ireland and fortunately some of his graffiti pieces are … Continue reading

Featured artist – Boo Saville

“Boo Saville explores the symbolic and ritualistic images of human remains and archeological remnants.” – so says the ‘About’ section of her website. It also says her work “looks at the human body through the process of drawing and painting”. Although her drawings are pretty cool -her paintings are something else. Here is a pick of some … Continue reading

Featured artist – Grzegorz Wrobel

Whats the best watercolour art you’ve ever seen? Whatever your answer is – forget it because its now the watercolour work of Polish artist Grzegorz Wrobel. I think I tried waterclolours before any other paint medium and as far as I can remember I wasn’t half bad at it. Come to think of it – the … Continue reading

Surely among a rich man’s flowering lawns

Surely among a rich man's flowering lawns, Oil and Acrylic on canvas, 2012

Ancestral Houses by W.B. Yeats Surely among a rich man’s flowering lawns, Amid the rustle of his planted hills, Life overflows without ambitious pains; And rains down life until the basin spills, And mounts more dizzy high the more it rains As though to choose whatever shape it wills And never stoop to a mechanical … Continue reading
