Chris Quinlan portrait

Chris Quinlan Artist

Chris Quinlan is an Irish artist painting full time since 1999.

He uses palette knives to apply acrylics or oils to canvas. His unique and original painting style can be described as chromo luminarismor divisionism and his subject matter is mainly derived from nature fused with personal experiences and memories. Evolving over time his work has become an eye-catching blend of rich colours and bold textures, an inviting and vivid style with intimacy and atmosphere.

Quinlan’s paintings are substantial and impactful, not the kind of paintings that sit quietly on a wall, these are paintings that let you know they are in the room, in no uncertain terms.

“My paintings are the result of my desire and passion to paint. Painting gives me the privilege of creating my own order to things, to reflect who I am on this colourful journey of self discovery and to be unafraid of what I find.“
