Wexford-born James Kirwan is an experienced artist now based in Dublin. His work has been showcased in solo and group exhibitions, and his mural work has been seen as far away as Canada. James has worked extensively in Ireland too, with recent work appearing in Gorey, Waterford and Dublin.
In 2020 James brought his art even more directly to people – he planted several small artworks across the city, painted on wood recycled from a friend’s skip and using wood washed up from Dublin’s beaches as frames. He invited anyone who stumbled across the pieces to keep this unique and original piece of art.
James has a keen interest in the importance of the protection of birds and their habitats in Ireland. He has brought this, in his distinctive style, in a stunning piece for Dún Laoghaire Anseo.
