If you happen to be around Dublin tomorrow, Mr Alan Clarke is having an exhibition of his work in Dun Laoghaire. Best know for his illustrations on the Ross O’Carroll Kelly series which satirically depicted the life of South-Side Dublin, Alan Clarke also creates fantastical works where he conjures “limitless panoramas of imagination and bewilderment” with amazing attention to detail and nearly always including tea cups and top hats. His exhibition ‘Dreams Dreamed with Open Eyes’ opens tomorrow 4th of April 6.30 at The Kingston Hotel, Dun Laoghaire. Some of Alan Clarke’s originals and prints are now available through his site here.
Some nice limited edition screen prints from Argentinian / Wales based creative Paula Benvegnu. With a background in Advertising, Product Design and Art Direction, Paula is currently focused on the screen printing process, exhibiting her work in Bristol, Leeds, Cardiff and London.
