The Artwork of Jim Fitzpatrick

The Artwork of Jim FitzpatrickJim Fitzpatrick was born in Dublin and today lives and works there. A highly individualistic self taught artist,whose style owes much to his Celtic forebears, he has produced a body of work of remarkable richness and imagination, is widely regarded as one of Ireland's most exciting and original artists and has achieved worldwide recognition for his drawings and paintings of Celtic mythology and other related themes.

His extraordinary paintings and drawings overflow with the exotic, the erotic, the heroic and often the bizarre, concentrated in intricate and jewel studded decorative patterns. Time locked and enduring, his vision of a distant Irish past is a superb evocation of fantasy and legend, embellished with a craftsman's flair for ornamentation and extravagant decorative effect. His interpretation of the ancient legends of Ireland, in his writings and paintings, is unique. These tales, which he has translated and rewritten in volumes such as "The Book of Conquests" and "The Silver Arm" are the inspiration for almost all of his work to date, and in his treatment of them Fitzpatrick has captured the magic of the potency of myth and legend with the skill of an ancient manuscript illuminator.

An authority on Celtic art and mythology, Fitzpatrick has lectured in Europe and the US on the subject. His work has been shown at exhibitions in most major cities in Ireland and the UK, and in many of the most prestigious museums including London's Victoria and Albert Museum.

Jim Fitzpatrick - Celtic ArtistFitzpatrick, a self taught artist and spent a period of time working in the US before returning to Dublin where he is now based. 

The Irish government published an account of Fitzpatrick's work in Ireland today in a bulletin issued by the department of foreign affairs. The article concluded: 
'We may never have a Wagner to put our Myths to music, but many will share my view that in Fitzpatrick we have an artist to illustrate and illuminate who is second to none." ,
