Kevin Lowery

Kevin Lowery is a seascape devoted painter living and working in the North-West of Ireland. Living by the sea all his life has inspired Kevin to paint the rolling surf, merciless oceanic turmoil, and the ever changing skies found along the coastline. 

Human beings have always had an intimate relationship with the water, and Kevin has always had a particular interest in the often unpredictable and life-changing nature of the sea, which can be seen in his unique ability to depict changing light on water and rapidly altering climatic conditions.

Having studied painting at Dublin’s National College Of Art And Design in the early 2000s, Kevin has exhibited extensively with numerous works in both Irish and international collections.  He has also recently become a keen surfer, which affords him yet another interesting perspective from which to explore the intricacies of Ireland’s Atlantic coast.
