Brian Ballard

Brian was born in Belfast and attended both Belfast and Liverpool Colleges of Art. After graduating he worked with the Arts Council of Northern Ireland for 20 years and has been a full time painter for the past 15 years. His work is mainly still life, landscapes and nudes with the main source of inspiration coming from painters such as Matisse and Bonnard. He is a modern day colourist whose palette of "vivid colours and bold subject matter wear a glaze of heat and summer. It is a generous art, and satisfying to watch". (Circa, Summer '99). Brian is regarded as one of Ireland's leading painters and his work is held in several important collections including U2, Arts Council of Ireland, and Royal Bank of Scotland.
