Colin Davidson – Seamus Heaney

Colin Davidson Seamus Heaney Surface and surface

The video below is a short interview by the BBC with Northern Irish Artist Colin Davidson on the making of his portrait for Nobel Laureate, the late Seamus Heaney.  This painting is part of his 30 odd large head series which began with a portrait of the musician Duke Special and later went on to include a number of portraits for the Lyric Theatre, Belfast. It’s an interesting insight into the process behind these amazing works. Colin will be in conversation with BBC NI arts broadcaster Marie-Louise Muir  Friday 13th December at 1pm as part of the Royal Ulster Academy’s Annual Exhibition season.
