Diarmaid Killeen, Dublin Member Since November 2012 Artist Statement I'm an Irish artist who’s been exhibiting since the age of fifteen. Now with over 25 years of experience, I've developed a mature & recognizable style. I paint colourful originals ranging from gentle dream-like landscapes to wild abstracts full of spontaneity & movement. The visual intensity of my art, always brimming with emotion & passion, can spark the imagination to generate other senses - the fragrance of a summer meadow, the noise of a gurgling stream, the touch of warmth from a golden sunset.
My style of painting has been described as abstract, impressionist, expressionist and other similar variations ("A sort of post-modern impressionism" -Nova Magazine, Paris, 1996). Hundreds of my original paintings are in private collections throughout Europe, USA and Canada. I have also sent paintings to South America, Africa, Russia, Japan and Australia.
