Tribute Poster to Phil Lynott
Thin Lizzy are a hard rock band formed in Dublin, Ireland, in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist and lead vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott led the group throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums, writing most of the material. The singles “Whiskey in the Jar” (a traditional Irish ballad), “The Boys Are Back in Town” and “Waiting for an Alibi” were international hits. After Lynott’s death in 1986, various incarnations of the band emerged over the years based initially around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. Gorham later continued with a new line-up including Downey.

A qualified Industrial Designer operating now as a full time professional artist from my studio ( Birch Cottage ) based in Mayo, West Ireland.
I generally find myself painting on a digital canvas and discovered some time ago that the digital art medium is a powerful tool. When combined with traditional acrylic and inks, fastidiously worked onto birch wood panels using brush and palette knife to create bold and powerful colours, the visual impact is spectacular !!!
Inspiration is derived from images and photographs digitally manipulated with thanks to modern technology to create an entirely new work of art. It is an evolving process to which I try to capture only the essential characteristics in order to create a new body of work portraying my own ideal.
As far as style development goes, I tend to base my style from ideas, music, and visuals I might come across. In this magical art world of pixels, why not create something beautiful ?
Celebrate the human, the marks people make on the world. Treasure the local, the small-scale, the eccentric, the ordinary.
It’s all about the colour splash !!
