Eamonn Mullarkey is an Irish artist based in Dublin, born and raised in Ballina Co Mayo in the west of Ireland. For the past 35 years he has been painting with oils on canvas.
His development as an artist has been influenced by the diversity of shape and form and the ever changing light and colour in the environment in which he grew up and where he continues to spend a lot of time. This is an area between the strong Atlantic coastline and the rugged Ox mountains.
In his painting he tries to depict this landscape by creating a dialogue between the Abstract and the Representational.
