Declan (b. 1983) lives and works in Belfast. His work has been exhibited on a local, national and international level and his works appear in many public and private collections. Declan is the recipient of the Arts Society of Ulster Student Awards, the 132nd Royal Ulster Academy Printmaking Award and Arts Council of Northern Ireland SIAP Award. Since completing his Masters of Fine Art, he has completed a year-long residency at the University of Ulster. From managing Northern Irelands longest running print workshop to teaching at the Belfast College of Art, working within the arts sector has broadened his discipline and scope of artistic practice. Much of Declan’s multidisciplinary work is created at Array Studios in Belfast, and is currently a member of Seacourt Print Workshop. A lot of the work references (and ranges from) popular and socio-political issues. There is a keen interest in surveillance culture, observation and the figurative. His most recent body of work is based upon his travels to Palestine.
