Hughie O’Donoghue RA was born in Manchester, England, although many of his early summers were spent in Bangor Erris, North-west Mayo. The stark Irish scenery with its accompanying sense of tragedy, derived from the days of The Great Famine, found later expression in O’Donoghue’s art. Hughie O’Donoghue studied at Goldsmiths’ College, University of London, and since then has been exhibiting his work in a variety of international solo and group exhibitions.
