Conor Gallagher has exhibited in places as diverse as woodlands in Sligo, a small island in Denmark, a clubhouse in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and the Salon Prado in Madrid, Spain. He won Best Irish Artist at the 20th National Open Art Exhibition in London in 2016 and has exhibited at the Royal Academy Annual Exhibition in London, the RHA Annual Exhibition in Dublin and the RUA Annual Exhibition in Belfast.

Gallagher’s paintings are developed with experimental use of paint and other media. They often start in a realistic style and are then de-constructed by literally scraping back to the surface.
