Collection: Graham Carew

 Graham Carew is an Irish painter and mixed media artist. He works in acrylics and watercolour but also uses permanent markers, household paint, and aerosols to cover his surfaces with imagery and text, which run from rant to mythology to poetry to personal stories. He has shown his work and performed Irish poetry at home, in the UK, in the US, and in the Middle East.

Being passionate about bringing art to people and about finding studio and showing space for artists, he spends the rest of his time working on projects that make these connections.
