JP Neeson

Born in Belfast in 1976, Neeson spent his childhood growing up in the city. Spending a great deal of time with his late grandfather, a shipyard worker, it was he who introduced him to the characters and culture of the city. He fondly remembers the sounds of traditional music leaking from the half open pub doors.
It wasn't until many years later that Neeson began painting, his childhood memories are now represented in his work, the Belfast folk scene and the traditions which are still part of the present day Belfast.
Neeson has a freedom with the brush and palette knife, combined with his vibrant colour palette captures the sounds and movement. Although Neeson has only recently started showing his work, he has already established himself on the Irish painting scene. He now lives and works in Co. Down
