Jimmy LAWLOR ✿

Jimmy Lawlor is a Irish Surrealist painter born in 1967
His work is based not only on the Irish sense of humour, but on the vivid realisation that the old way of life will have vanished by our next generation.

His work takes elements from his surroundings and mixes them with the people of the place, in their environment and doing what they love best. In their own way, they have helped create the atmosphere around them, whether they be farmers, business people, students or otherwise.
Lawlor’s work has been likened to the works of the surrealist’s – “imagine a Salvador Dali who has regained at least half of his sanity and moved to the west of Ireland, and you begin to enjoy art that is not only accessible, but as warm and fantastic as a good dream”. Lawlor’s work is included in many important private and corporate collections in Ireland and all around the world. Among them, Hugh Leonard, Treasury Holdings, Diageo Ireland, Dermot Desmond, Brenda Fricker, Great Southern Hotel Group, Government Buildings and Anglo Irish Bank, London. Hugh Leonard, Art Critic with the Irish Independent, wrote of his work.

”La tristezza vola via con le ali del tempo.”
