Dublin Art Competition 2014


Preserve and Protect: Challenge & Innovate

Kevin Mooney

Kevin Mooney was born in Dublin and completed an MFA in Painting from the National College of Art and Design in 2012, having previously studied at Crawford College of Art, Cork. On his work, Mooney comments, “The language of my recent paintings is rooted in a territory somewhere between history, folklore and a fantastical imagined world. Motifs from Irish visual culture compete on the canvas with decorative and abstract elements to create a backdrop which suggests the possibilities of cultural cross pollination. Historical research into cultural migration has played a key role in developing my practice.”
