Gerard Byrne is one of Ireland’s leading contemporary artists, his extensive collection is representative of a scope and versatility virtually unparalleled in the current contemporary art scene. Gerard’s landscape and architectural works take us on a stunning and insightful journey through some of the most spectacular vistas, both in his native Ireland and on his foreign travels, particularly in France, Britain, Croatia, Poland and Morocco.

For those already acquainted with Gerard’s work, his frequent plays on perspective are one of the most exciting aspects of his compositions.  Equally, it is exciting and challenging to probe into his still life and figurative works and dare to delve into the mind of their creator.  The sheer scale and powerful depictions presented within these works have made him one of the most exciting figurative artists on the contemporary scene in Ireland today.
The speed and spontaneity with which he works is demonstrative of a talent which is nothing short of pure nature – a true gift, which has given Gerard the confidence and skill to take his work in such diverse, complex and challenging directions.

Gerard Byrne was born in Dublin in 1958.  His works hang in the Irish Government’s Art Collections and in numerous commercial and private collections worldwide.
He currently lives in Brighton, UK, but travels extensively in search of new experiences and sources of inspiration.
