Irish Artist - Donald Teskey
Irish artist Donald Teskey has become arguably one of the best known landscape painters of his generation in Ireland. Never afraid to introduce urban aspects into formal landscape painting, he has devoted much focus to observing and painting the relentless and elemental nature of the Irish coastline and the sea. Having spent a wintery period in 2011 on a residency at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Co Mayo Ireland, he has become more fluent in the drama and vividness of the northwest Irish Atlantic coastline.
Donald Teskey became a member of the Irish art RHA and was elected a member of Aosdána - an exclusive honour for any Irish artist. His recent exhibition at the Oliver Sears gallery in Dublin (http://www.oliversearsgallery.com) was a great success.
