Contemporary depictions of Ireland's landscape, iconic landmarks and musical traditions.

Adrian Margey is one of Northern Ireland's most collectable young artists. Hailed by the Belfast Telegraph as 'one of the rising stars of a new generation of Ulster artists' his contemporary depictions of Irish landscape, iconic local landmarks and musical traditions are winning him a fan base both nationally and internationally.

Adrian has two very distinct styles. One he labels as traditional – inspired in the main part by the Irish impressionists. The other he labels loosely as contemporary. It is characterised by bold colours and strong form which echo the aesthetics of modern living. This style makes reference to the Naïve School and Fauvism and has been influenced by time spent in South America. Adrian uses a range of palette knife, finger painting and brush techniques to create his distinctive work.

Between public exhibitions you are welcome to visit Adrian's Portrush Studio & Gallery at the junction of Mark Street & Main Street (to the side of the Portrush Atlantic Hotel). A wide selection of Adrian's work is on display here year round. Please phone ahead for opening hours.
