about Val Byrne

When you see something that gives you an emotional feeling, taking you away by the hand to unknown places and yet so familiar, sometimes you may wonder what is the reason of such a miracle: the charm of art? The skill of the artist? A particular time in your life? The answer is often in the semplicity of the vision you’re in front of, as in the case of the artworks by Val Byrne.

Born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1936, Val has a particular interest in the urban landscape of Ireland. Most of Byrne’s limited edition prints record Irish scenes of the 20th and 21st Century with an emphasis on harbours and boats and a mixture of domestic and residential buildings.

His prints feature the bright colours of the characteristic buildings, villages and harbours around Ireland. He has always sought to include in his prints a degree of quirkyness and the absurd. As he says: “If there is wobbly leaning lamppost with straggling wires in the scene, I leave it in”.

And he is certainly happy when no car is on his way.
