London Irish Painting

£ 12.00 each

+

Paintings of ‘The Quiet Men’ - five London Irish painters: Bernard Canavan, John Duffin, Dermot Holland, Brian Whelan and the late Daniel Carmody. ‘The Quiet Men’ is in reference to the remarkable fact that much of the UK’s historical literature on immigration to England, Scotland and Wales neglects the significance of the Irish. This omission is reflected in the visual arts as well.

“The Irish World is delighted to sponsor the Quiet Men book, which we hope will bring a unique collection of paintings to a wider audience. The paintings examine the experience of Irish people who left Ireland for Britain in the 20th Century, and are as full of humour as they are pain. The Irish World continues to champion the talents of Irish men and women in all walks of life.” -- Paddy Cowan.

Thirty-two pages in perfect binding with full profiles of the 5 artists and 26 full colour reproductions.

“The best way I could describe Brian would be to call him the rock & roll painter.”
Paul McGuinness of the Popes

“Brian’s cityscapes have frantic energy.”
‘Amelia’, Melbourne’s Street Poet

“He goes to dark, grim places, places that in the modern world we like to pretend don’t exist and when he gets there he cracks jokes. This work is the work of the medieval jester.”
Joe Horgan, Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award winner
