Irish contemporary art – George Callaghan

'Evening Fen' by Irish artist George Callaghan

'Evening Fen' by Irish artist George Callaghan

Today’s featured Irish Artist is George Callaghan. George was born in County Antrim, Northern Ireland in 1941. He left school at 15 to work as an apprentice Commercial Artist. A year later he commenced studying Art at the Belfast College of Art on a Scholarship.

After studing at Belfast College of Art George started work in Dublin as a designer. He then left for London before continuing his career working in Australia for a number of leading advertising agencies. At the age of 32 he then moved to the Australian Island State of Tasmania where he has lived for the last 27 years.

The move to Tasmania prompted a major change in Callaghan’s career. He set up an art studio and also started making musical instruments. He now enjoys the reputation of being Australia’s leading Harp maker and a leading exponent of the Celtic Harp. However, it is Callaghan’s paintings that have created consistent interest over the years. His paintings whether in Acrylic, Oil or Pastel all exude a certain quirkiness and narrative with his native Northern Ireland roots very evident.
