John Hurley

Professional artist John Hurley graduated from The National College of Art & Design in 1984 and is based full-time in County Kerry where the rugged coastline of the region informs his landscape painting.


In the intervening years he has exhibited widely and has had numerous successful solo shows. Since moving to Kerry in 1995 his work has blossomed and his intuitive, abstract impasto style has become much sought after. His eleventh One-Man Show in 2003 at Cill Rialaig, County Kerry was opened by Ireland's Minister for Arts, Sport & Tourism, John O'Donohue TD. There is a sense of earthiness, of elemental forces at work permeating this collection of paintings.

 

Hurley is represented in many public. corporate and private collections in Ireland and overseas, notably in the collections of AIB Group, Citibank, IFX Power, Noelle Campbell Sharp, Norma Smurfitt, Xaviour McAulliffe, Legal Aid Board, Brandon Hotel, Tralee, Brehan Hotel, Killarney and John O'Donohue TD among others.
