Irish Artist Gerry Glynn was born in Dublin and formed an early interest in drawing, painting and sculpture. Apart from a short period in the National College of Art and Design, Dublin he is self taught. He developed his own distinctive style in oil painting, but was first influenced by classical sculpture, the surrealists and eventually by the impressionists.
He is at home with most of the painterly subjects, being an exponent of street scenes, still life, landscapes and seascape. He has always expressed a flair for a magic realist style which is uniquely his own.
During the 80’s Gerry was recognised by winning seven top awards in National and International Art Competitions for drawing and painting including his magic real piece ‘The Ninth Hour’. He also achieved awards in National Portrait Competitions. He took the top award in an international competition in 2013 for a large night scene of Dublin City which was exhibited at the Little Museum of Dublin for some months.
He designed and illustrated 12 large panels for a treasure trove picture book commissioned by the late novelist Desmond Leslie in 1980-83. He worked on background design and rendering with Emerald City Productions animation film company in 1986 to1992.
His works have been acquired by the Dept. of defence, NTMA, Castle Leslie and are also in collections in Ireland, Europe, United States, Australia and Japan.
Many of his works have works were purchased by Sports and TV personalities and he has a listing in Whyte’s Buyer’s Guide to Irish Art.
Gerry’s work has been exhibited at RHA & Oireachtas exhibitions, in many group shows in Ireland and abroad and sold at auctions throughout Ireland.
Art 4 You is essentially ‘artist owned’. Run by artists for artists. Historically, it is very difficult as an artist to promote your artwork. Hiring expensive galleries and paying extortionate fees. Art 4 You allows exposure for the artists and the customer buys it from the artist.
Artists register and upload their works of art to the site and once a customer purchases the artwork, ships it. We are sure you will enjoy your experience on Art 4 You – as a customer and artist. Whether you are a serious collector or just curious, you will find works by a plethora of Irish artists here. Thanks to the internet, art has become more accessible to everyone and is no longer the preserve of an elite. If a painting or sculpture speaks to you then go ahead and buy it! You don’t need someone telling you whether it’s art or not. We provide highly detailed images of paintings so you can meditate on them before you buy. Why go for a print or reproduction that is hanging on the walls of thousands of homes when you can have a unique, original piece that speaks to you and you alone?
