New Arrival

William Watson, William Watson was born in 1975 and currently lives and teaches in Kilkenny. He studied Art and design and achieved a diploma in fine art at NCAD (Dublin).

The artist paints mainly with acrylic on canvas, primed with warm tones, building up the composition with layers of small brushstrokes. This building up of punctuated colour has the overall aim of producing intense and vibrant tones, dramatically increasing the freshness and temperature of the painting.

Watson says of Connemara and her people; 'My paintings are a testament to these special people, their land and the sea about them.'

Commissions include Springhill Court Hotel, Durrow Castle Hotel and Duiske Abbey as well as many private pieces.

The artist's first solo exhibition was at Kilkenny's arts festival in 2005.
