About me

Eoin Mac Lochlainn artist

Hello, my name is Eoin Mac Lochlainn and I’ve been writing this blog once a week since July 2010.  It’s mostly musings on art and stories about the art scene in Ireland.

But first of all, I’m a practicing artist.

I graduated from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin.

I won The Golden Fleece Award in 2008.   In 2010, I was shortlisted for the Davy Portrait Award and I won the ESB Keating McLaughlin Medal at the Royal Hibernian Academy Exhibition.

My work is in the collections of: The Office of Public Works,  AIB,  Bank of Ireland,   AXA Insurance,  The Revenue Commissioners,  University of Limerick,  Wesley College,   the Boyle Civic Collection and in many private collections in Ireland and abroad.

I am one of the founder members of the art group called Tondo.  We have had exhibitions in all sorts of strange places – in a railway station, a lighthouse, a public park, a crate – but we also had a show in The National Gallery of Ireland.

I have had several solo shows around Ireland,  and I have participated in various selected exhibitions ( RHA, Iontas, Éigse, Oireachtas ) and in other group shows in Ireland, England, France, Belgium, Georgia, and China.

Much more information about my work can be seen on my website at –  www.eoinmaclochlainn.com
