Dublin based artist Mo Kelly is one of Ireland’s hotly tipped emerging talents.
Her work is figurative and landscape based and is heavily inspired by new places and cities she has traveled to and the books and poetry she has read.
Miss Kelly has exhibited nationally and throughout Europe and U.S. As both a musician and artist, Miss Kelly is steeped in the cultural and creative art scene in Ireland’s capital. Her work has been geared towards capturing the energy and style of a vibrant musically infused city that is constantly in a state of flux.
Night time also features heavily in Mo's work, her fascination with the trickery of twilight on her landscape scenes brings an other worldly dimension to her paintings. Her use of gold and silver leaf highlighting this fascination with light and shape.
A former Taoiseach has two of her paintings, Mos paintings were chosen from a panel of Irish artists on two separate occasions, and presented to An Taoiseach.
Sienna Miller is also a fan, likening Mo’s Work to
“ A rock 'n' roll Modigliani “
Mo recently had the pleasure and honor of presenting actor and Irelands new cultural ambassador Gabriel Byrne with one of her paintings at Ard Scoil Eanna, the school her grandfather founded.
The right to education for all is something that is in mo's blood, she comes from a family of teachers. Her next project and exhibition aims to continue to raise funds for her late mothers school for girls in Pakistan.
