J. KIERAN MCGONNELL

James Kieran McGonnell was born in Cork City, Ireland in 1967. He studied Studio Art and Art History at Hunter College in Manhattan.  Since coming to New York, McGonnell has shown his work continuously at museums, galleries, and universities.  His work has been seen nationally in venues including The Kennedy Center Festival, Washington, D.C. and ARTCENTER, Miami, Florida.

Kieran has been profiled in numerous publications throughout the US and in Ireland, including the New York Times, Boston Globe, L.A. Times, Irish Tribune and Irish Business Post.  In an article entitled ‘Top 40 under 40’, McGonnell was selected as one of the top Irish success stories living in the US today.

Kieran’s technique has been developed over a long period of time and creates a unique and vibrant finish.  He designs all of his work in his head and then hand draws outlines for all of the pieces.  By using a combination of hand made oil paints and industrial spray paints, he creates works that are brilliantly-colored, crisp edged and highly sought after.
