Meet Colin Donnelly June 7, 2015 Art 1 Colin Donnelly is an exciting young Irish artist who has created his own unique genre of neo 1950’s comic book art with a villainous allure marking out his own particular style. Painting in oil on canvas with almost geometric precision and attention to detail his use of colour impacts with an immediate and enigmatic attraction on the viewer beguiling one to find the hidden meaning behind the picture’s creation. Are they the fantasy figures from another dimension where the artists creative spirit goes for inspiration or are they like the Middle Earth characters of a Gothic epic tale, the creations of a genius who can conjure up a masterpiece from the seeds of his surroundings and embellish them into a thing of captavating brilliance with a Midas touch. Turning the ordinary into the extraordinary the characters have a life which is both sinister and friendly, and therein lies the attraction of the genre. Adapting his precise and methodical approach to his work, the artist has rejected the abstract splash and dash of modernism and given structure to the well proportioned characters in their Harlequinesque attire.
