Contemporary Irish Artist
Paintings, Prints, Murals, Sculpture
& Art Educator based in Ennis, Co. Clare
David O’Rourke has been working as a professional Artist for over 20 years. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and his artwork can be found in homes around the globe.
David takes inspiration from both the muted greys of the Irish landscape and the intense colour and light of Australia.
His work can be considered postmodern- recycling and appropriating past styles in a modern day context. His work can vary from tongue-in-cheek social commentary, to the intensely personal.
David has also been involved in almost all aspects of art locally; from setting up Artist’s collectives to the development and running of The Ennis Fringe Festival.
He has also worked extensively as an educator with local schools, with charities such as Enable Ireland, and is currently working with Clare Local Development Company.
David has worked as an educator/ facilitator for over ten years. He has worked with many local schools and for agencies like Enable Ireland, Clare Youth Services, Brothers of Charity, and Clare Local Development Company.
David has experience working with a range of age-groups and abilities. Classes and projects are individually tailored to the age range and abilities of the respective groups.
David teaches art lessons to schools, community groups, adults, corporate teams. He lessons include drawing, colour theory, perspective, sculpture and 3D drawing using SketchUp. David works with both groups and private individuals.
