BIO:  Robert McLearnon


Professional artist Robert McLearnon was born in Belfast in 1964. He studied Fine Art at the University of Ulster and graduated with a first class BA Hons Degree in 1987, followed by an MA Degree in 1988. Since graduating, Robert has continued to explore his creative vocation, and the increasing popularity of Robert’s work stems from his ability to appeal to a wide audience. Through his bold and courageous handling of paint, complimented by areas of tender tranquillity, these vibrant paintings convey a visual excitement with an emotional or even spiritual atmosphere. “My artwork consists of an ongoing analysis of my observations and interaction with people and places. My paintings are created through a process of action and reaction. Each image evolves through the exploration of form and space along with the influence of light to create intrigue and atmosphere. I also employ the energy of colour to add a visual poetry with the aim of making an emotive connection with the viewer.” Throughout his career Robert has produced many private and varied commissions including treasured portraits of loved ones for many clients. He was also commissioned early in his career to produce two abstract paintings for the set of the BBC television drama “Monkeys” about John De Lorean. Robert continues to exhibit work in various galleries in the United Kingdom and Ireland and his paintings can be found in many collections throughout the UK, Ireland, France, Italy, Canada, Australia and USA.
