Irish artist Michael Farrell attended Central St. Martin's College of Art, London. His paintings juxtaposed an abstracted pop art style with Irish images and he became extremely successful commercially towards the end of the 1960s. He represented Ireland at the Paris Biennale in 1967. Farrell relocated to France in 1971. He maintained a love-hate relationship with Ireland and the escalating violence in the north during the 1970s profoundly influenced his work. Elected a member of Aosdána in 1987, Farrell exhibited regularly at the Taylor Galleries and his work is included in many private and public collections.
