Brian Ballard

Brian BallardBrian Ballard studied at the College of Art, Belfast and at the College of Art, Liverpool. While he has spent most of his career in Belfast he also spends long periods of time living and working in his house on remote and rugged island of Inishfree off the coast of Donegal.

His contemporary approach to painting alternates between figurative treatment of nudes, landscape and expressionistic still life, all of which he practises in equal measure and intensity.These genres have enabled a spontaneity of approach that has endured for the artist and yet within this diverse range of output, each composition bears the instantly recognisable stamp of Ballard. His work appears in a diverse array of collections.
