Kevin McAleenan is an artist that we take great pride in exhibiting in our gallery as well as showcasing internationally. His work challenges you to take a closer look and try and work out how he accomplish's such pieces. Kevin's works are very much for both the national and International market, as we have seen recently in New York and also London. The feedback that we received and the number of paintings purchased in these two cities was overwhelming.
Kevin McAleenan was born in Banbridge, County Down. He studied art at the University of Ulster and graduated in 1985. Kevin’s paintings – ‘a response to a way of life slowly fading in a changing Ireland’ – focus on creating striking colour relationships, which drift towards the abstract. His images are distilled into strong, interlocking colour blocks. Kevin worked in the advertising world for 15 years as one of the countries top commercial illustrators. Kevin has exhibited at Ireland's Home and Gardens 'Artist of the Month' as well as exhibiting at the Royal Ulster academy.
