Collection: Kevin McAleenan

Kevin McAleenan responds to Ireland and beyond in beautifully balanced blocks of colour. His paintings actively shift between realism and abstraction — between what he remembers and what you think you see — bringing you fresh appreciation with each viewing.

Born in Banbridge, County Down, Kevin graduated in 1985 with ‘BA Hons Art and Design’ from Ulster University. He was one of the country’s top commercial illustrators for 15 years, working primarily in advertising and publishing – illustrating children’s favourite ‘Horrid Henry’ was a career highlight.
