Eoin O Connor is one of Ireland's leading contemporary artists. His early years were spent in architecture, however the urge to paint took over and he has been painting for over twenty years.
Eoin has spent many years creating a luxury brand with both his original paintings and fine art prints. It has always been a dream of Eoin's to bring beautiful, high end products to the market with his work. Eoin's products are printed, prepared and packaged in his workshop in Gorey, Co. Wexford. You can see his work at his gallery on Esmonde Street in Gorey.
Among his many achievements are being commissioned to paint a portrait of Daniel Day Lewis for the European premiere of the multi Oscar winning movie Lincoln. To Celebrate Converse’s 125th birthday Eoin was commissioned to design sneakers in his own unique style.
Eoin has exhibited in the UK, Germany and the USA.
Eoin’s eclectic style and striking use of colour makes his work instantly recognizable. While his command over scale and perspective is rooted in his architectural training, his passion remains firmly grounded in creating strikingly vibrant paintings which echo his unique view of the simple things in life. Eoin’s vividly contrasting palette and striking compositions provide an instantly recognizable style. His unique use of high quality paints on thick canvas results in creating a multi-dimensional perspective for the viewer; heightened through techniques such as impasto and a nuanced understanding of his subject matter.
In July 2019 Eoin launched a café range with Tipperary Crystal. It has grown significantly in that time. Eoin is constantly developing new products and adding to the luxury homeware range. You can check out the range here.
