Brian Keating
ie Ireland

I'm a professional Dublin artist living in the South of France.

I studied at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland. After college, I was employed as an art director on many of Ireland's leading magazines.

For the last 13 years, I've been drawing.

A lot of my drawings are done on site and I also work from some of my old sketches, photographs and notes.
I now draw full time.

If you would like a drawing of a building or place please contact me.

INSPIRATION
I love the shape and form of buildings, from the simple stone hut to the superb majesty of the "Notre Dame de Paris. Sentinels defying gravity and time. Buildings that are infused with history and sharing the energy of life, as it evolves around them.

Lifeforce is my inspiration, I endeavour to capture a moment in time, hopefully retaining the movement, energy and direction within the image.

My drawings are in collections worldwide.

About Brian Keating

I'm an Irish guy living and painting full-time, in the South of France.

I was born in Dublin, Ireland and attended the National College of Art and Design, (NCAD). After graduation I worked as a graphic designer on many of Ireland's leading magazines.

I enjoyed graphic design but my desire was to paint. So I eased out of design and into art.

Whilst I love most types of abstract art, My passion is Geometric Expressionism.

When I paint, I try to portray situations in time and/or the mind state. As I begin building the base colour, I allow my mind to wander. I siphon my thoughts and allow a concept to form. I then translate the mental image, ( through the medium of paint ) onto the canvas using brushes and knives.

I usually complete a painting in one sitting (2 to 15 hours) without a break. I'ts only when the painting is finished, that I fully realise what I've done.

I have given titles to most of my paintings but my art is open to the viewers' interpretations. I use strong primary colours to create positivity and sometimes I introduce a soft colour to "calm" the painting.

I like my art to be "Thought Provoking" and "Positive".
