David Begley

David Begley is an Irish artist, writer and arts educator, living and working on the Wexford coast. He studied at The West Wales School of The Arts, and has presented his animations, drawings, paintings and prints at galleries and festivals in Australia, China, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, USA and the UK.  His anthropomorphic landscapes and allegorical figurative works utilise classical and contemporary techniques while drawing upon invention as much as observation. 

For this commission, David will explore the history and heritage of Rosslare harbour and facilitate a drawing, print and animation project with school children in Rosslare. Follow David’s progress on his dedicated Facebook page.
