Ian Healy

Ian Healy’s depiction of the contemporary figure navigate a precarious line where meaning meets form. His work using a variety of mediums, whether it is pastels, oil paint, or watercolour, are often produced in quick bursts to portray a sense of urgency and tension.

He draws on a variety of sources including literature, film, comic books and art history. He uses humour, historic reference and the imagination to tell stories or narratives, that are brought alive with an exuberance of colours.

He was born in Cork City in the Republic of Ireland. He gained a degree in Painting from the Crawford College of Art & design in 1992.

He has shown recently in a number of galleries in London, and his work is held in the collection of the Crawford Municipal Gallery, Ireland.
