Author: Eoin Mac Lochlainn, visual artist
Hello, I am an Irish visual artist and I’ve been writing a weekly art blog since July 2010. The blog is basically about the life of the artist - my interests, my inspirations, some stories about the art scene in Ireland, other musings... I'm gradually adding pages which will eventually form an archive of all my art exhibitions since my graduation from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin in 2000. But first of all, I’m a practicing artist. 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. I am one of the founder members of the artists' collective 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 in Ireland, and have participated in various group shows in Ireland, England, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, the USA, Georgia, and China. More information about my work can be seen in the Exhibitions section of this website and also at the Olivier Cornet Gallery in Great Denmark Street, Dublin 1 see: https://www.oliviercornetgallery.com/
