James Brohan – James Brohan described as an “established artist” whose work would grace any wall. James Brohan’s style continues to evolve, exploring new subject matter and ideas. Born in Dublin in 1952 he studied painting and anatomy under the direction of Yann Goulet, RHA from 1985 – 86. His influence on James was to “Look and Observe” and he told Brohan, “If you can’t see it you can’t paint it” thus an artist should be able to look and capture in his minds eye the subject, movement, colour, tone and feeling of what he is about to paint. From 1986 – 87 Brohan studied under Liam Treacy, who taught Brohan how to use paint in a colourful and loose impressionistic way. From these valuable teachers, Brohan’s style has thus evolved over the years to be more colourful, using the paint thickly, in impasto.
