Artist Fintan Whelan at work

Fintan Whelan

The works of the Irish painter Fintan Whelan (born in 1967) are characterised by their highly experimental approach. Whelan mixes raw silk powder and fibres with pigments, which are then in turn bound with oils and emulsions to create amorphous, fluid textures and configurations.

"My way of working has become more meticulous through constantly adding or applying new materials like silk fibres or testing new techniques to push my process to its limits. This continuous experimentation is a key element to my new works. My objective is to develop my work to a new level, to strive for a new vision and an echo of life as I experience it," reports the artist.

Fintan Whelan lives and works in Ireland and Germany.
