Background on James Brohan:
Born in Dublin in 1952 James Brohan studied anatomy under the direction of Yann Goulet RHA 1985-1986. His influence on Brohan was to look and observe and as he taught Brohan "if you can't see it, you can't paint it." An artist should be able to look and capture in his mind's eye the subject, movement, colour, tone and emotion of what he is about to paint. Brohan also studied under Des Carrick while he was in NCAD.
James Brohan lives and works in Co. Wicklow.
