Glenn Matthews


A PopArt, portrait Artist inspired by the likes of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, Glenn is originally from the leafy suburbs of Belfast but is now firmly established as a resident Artist in the magnificent setting of Studio 27, Ardgillan Castle. His work has been described in the USA as “Precision Impressionism” with the author, Larissa DePalma, continuing:

“Glenn is impressionistic as he breaks figures down into blocks of colour… close up almost abstraction but as you step away the blocks flow together to form the subject in the most precise way possible. 

A modern-day technical Monet”

 His collectors include Donal Gallagher, brother of the late, great Rory Gallagher, (Glenn has a Rory Gallagher album cover, The French Connection, in his portfolio) as well as Steve Garrigan, Kodaline front man.

 Proud to have pieces all over the world he continues to develop his craft with local galleries as well as representation in Milan, Italy where he has plans to exhibit this year.

Original pieces, limited edition prints and various pieces of work in progress are always on show in his studio and well worth a visit.
