Born in Co. Limerick in 1956, Donald Teskey RHA graduated from Limerick College of Art and Design with a Diploma in Fine Art in 1978. Since 1992 he has crafted a substantial body of work as a painter of the urban landscape and more recently the rugged landscape of the western seaboard. Sometimes working on a very large scale, his images reflect his response to the formal elements of composition; shape, form and fall of light. The result is powerful images of instantly recognisable parts of the Irish landscape with large abstract passages and surfaces which articulate the relentless energetic and elemental force of nature.
