Niall has built a strong reputation in Ireland and internationally for his distinctive and affordable modern art. He has had four solo shows to date and his art has been shown around the world including Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Stockholm, Edinburgh, London, New York and the prestigious SOFA exhibition in Chicago.
Working from his studio in the village of Stamullen, Co. Meath, close to the heart of the historic Boyne Valley on the east coast of Ireland, Niall is an artist driven by positivity and energised by colour. In his paintings and creations, Niall aims to capture the different elements that go to create positive and transformative moments in our lives. He enjoys capturing the intensity and purity of colour in his work, reflecting the importance of appreciating of each ingredient that goes to make up really great moments.
Having initially established a strong reputation for his ‘small squares’, Niall’s creativity is kept fresh by continuously looking to bring new dimensions to his work. In recent years Niall has diversified his artistic offerings creating a series of distinctive mixed media 'stripe paintings’, a number of a very striking ‘Infinity’ paintings using lights and mirrors, a new series of mixed-paintings inspired by the rich history of Persian style carpet making in Co. Donegal in the late 1800’s, and has also created the landmark coloured Glasshouse at the Wineport Lodge in Co Westmeath.
In addition, some of Niall’s latest work in the studio, eg ‘Dublin Bay Wonder’, draws influence from urban & street art, demonstrating how Niall likes to keep an edge to his work and reinforces his relentless drive to create art that is modern and visually impactful and at the same time speaks directly to the constant core inspiration of his work - positivity …!!
