Titanic Artist New Belfast Art Show

Jim McDonald Solo - East Belfast Memories Exhibition Jim McDonald has painted in Canada, England, and Ireland. A three year period in Kildare saw his love of horses produce racing scenes still sought by many enthusiasts of the sport. He worked in the Delorean factory as illustrator before painting full time. In Canada, McDonald was commissioned to paint a portrait of The Governor General of Canada. This led to portraits of other well known personalities. McDonald's paintings have always been popular, from early watercolours and pastels to bold and colourful oils of today. Notable influences are McAuley, Conor, Yeats and Turner - but he is constantly experimenting, and his current project displays a trend towards even more colourful and fascinating subjects which are very collectable. Last year, the Royal Mail published two "Titanic" stamps using McDonald's images. These new works on East Belfast Memories are highly evocative of a long-gone period in Belfast and seem certain to give McDonald his second sell-out show in a row.
