Derry born artist Brian O’Doherty has been active in design and the visual arts in the North West of Ireland for many years. Alongside his practice as a printer he has lectured in art and was designer and artistic director at the Design Factory in Derry. He has worked on campaign graphics for a broad spectrum of environmental, political and community groups.
O’Doherty’s art has an immediate appeal. Filled with sumptuous colour and powerful imagery his work often examines and portrays cityscapes, landscapes and dreamscapes. Seeped in a dreamlike quality the work can contain an ecological or political message but equally evokes a sence of fun and narrative.
He is currently based in Co.Donegal and his works are in private and public collections in Ireland, Hong Kong, Australia, the UK and the USA.
