Shane O’Driscoll is a visual artist who practices mainly in printmaking and murals. The art of balance informs his work. Limited elements ranging from the geometric to the textured are carefully positioned against a fl at back-ground. Each motif is distinctive in its own right but it also enhances and resonates with those around, creating an element of tension or frisson across the composition.

He studied Visual Communications and is a member of Cork Printmakers. He also creates large scale murals in both city and rural settings. He has exhibited his work internationally and throughout Ireland. Shane has work in the permanent collection of The National Gallery of Ireland, Trinity College Dublin, Glucksman Museum UCC, and UCD.
