U2 inspired art

I mentioned this artist here recently. My friend had an exhibition in Sydney and stumbled upon this guy's work at a nearby gallery.

I think I heard about this guy on U2log.com last year sometime. I like his site, will have to check out the paintings further when I'm in a fit state to comment.

Hi cass, thanks a million for this website! What a find. I'm drawn to bright colours myself. I wonder what was the reception like with his works; was it a successful exhibition? What did people say, if you've read any reviews? I think this exhibition is more a fun thing for the artist than a serious one. Very indulgent. The way he presented the songs were comical and bordering on the corny but nice and well-meaning nonetheless. I like his iconography, definitely some Keith Haring influences there, like he mentioned

To be honest foray I only glanced at the thumbnails on his front page. I have no net time to surf unfortunately.I was mainly reacting to my friend's pleasure of the memory she shared with me about accidently finding herself in such a place.Just providing a U2ey link in case anyone was interested.

Thanks for that Cass! Do you or your friend know anything else about him? And also does your friend have any site with his/her work on? I'd love to see it if possible.

hi angela, unfortunately my friend is not making a living with her art, so no, she doesn't have a web site..she doesn't have a puter. But she should!!imho.
She specialises in waves and seascapes, but did a series called "reconcilliation" that I particularly love. Waterlillies with tiny black and white babies amongst them. So much love goes into her work. She painted me a lovely coastal lake scene with flannel flower detail for my big 4 0. I treasure that one.
No I don't know anything about the irish artist, but he seems to like U2,so must be cool.Good luck to him.He's off to Dublin next the lucky man.

Thanks for that Cass, I wish your friend well with her work. Any one that attemps water in their subject gets much admiration from me! I tried it once with realism, and it kinda worked, but its so hard to do! Its a shame she cannot make it her living.

I have never succeeded in really getting water right. The trick is to remember it ain't blue - that's just the sky. In a similar vein, a realistically-rendered drinking glass is so hard to conceptualize.
