John O’Sullivan is an Irish contemporary artist based in Kenmare Co Kerry. His art is abstract, but also impressionistic. It is inspired mostly by the landscape and seascape of Kerry and the west coast of Ireland.
He paints only using oils and palette knives and this leaves him
with a very textured canvas when he has finished a piece. There will be a three-dimensional effect to all his work because of the way he applies the
paint with the knife.
It makes his paintings more energetic and vibrant and helps them capture light and evoke movement.
Educated as an engineer and after a career in the IT corporate sector
John began painting 5 years ago and has a studio in Kenmare.
