Eamon Regan

Eamon Regan was born in Dublin in 1956. He studied Art & Architecture at The Kunst Akademy Art School in Copenhagen, Denmark, and at the School of Architecture, UCD, Dublin. He later went on to study at the National College of Art & Design, Dublin and was awarded the Certificate in Visual Arts Practice in 2012. Eamon continued his studies at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, USA, and recently attended the master class in landscape painting at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ballycastle, Mayo, under the tutelage of Randall Exon and Jeff Reed.

From an early age Eamon has been involved with painting. As a child he was frequent winner of the annual Texaco and Glen Abbey National Children’s Art Competition.

Eamon is a figurative painter and as an architect his work is centered on the subject of the Irish landscape, both in the vernacular and the modern. Working from his studio on the North Mayo coast, Eamon is engaged in the subject of the urban form in his paintings and has a particularly interest in the expressive use of colour, light and space in relation to the Irish landscape. He also shows a keen interest in contemporary still life; the work of Charles Brady and Morandi being greatly influential to him, sand American realists Andrew Wyatt and Edward Hopper.
