Belfast, Northern Ireland
Based in Belfast, and born in Dublin, Kevin Collin's artwork is influenced by his surroundings and history. His background as a handloom weaver and textile designer inspires him. His mark-making brush strokes emulate the warp and weft of weaving, resulting in a textural and woven appearance. Working mainly in acrylics on canvas, his work focuses on Northern Ireland at night; the dimming light of day giving way to the spark of street lights.
