Irish painter Felim Egan studied in Belfast, Portsmouth and the Slade School of Art, London. Hiss paintings draw on an abstract language, captured in symbols relating to music, literature and landscape, most often that of Sandymount Strand where he has lived and painted since the 1980s. Egan has exhibited across Europe since 1979. He represented Ireland at the Biennale de Paris in 1981 and the São Paulo Biennale in 1985. Egan had a major solo exhibition at IMMA in 1996.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, IMMA’s galleries will be closed from the evening of Friday 18 September until Saturday 10 October 2020. The grounds of IMMA and the RHK will remain open. Thank you for your cooperation.
