I’m very much in love with Oisin Byrne’s art. 

It’s hard to describe but is mostly concerned with light, colours and happiness.

Some pieces have distinct dreamlike impressionistic qualities. 

It’s just beautiful. Check it out for yourself….. 


The above pic is from Oisin’s graduate show at NCAD in 2005, whereby he hung 1,000 pieces of oragami from the ceiling over two mattresses which you were invited to lay on and look up at the hundereds of tiny oragami creatures! 

So who is he? 

Oisin Byrne, who was one of the founders of the Defastenist movement, paints “like a dream” creating “marvellous tumbling universes of line and colour, which shout: freedom!” (dubliner magazine, august 05).

…..Advocating ‘an art which is the product of play’, his ‘chilled, blissed-out vision’ (aidan dunne, irish times, june 06) is tempered with humour and lightness, and takes influence from varied eastern perspectives and cultural traditions. 

 Oisín currently practices from studio 8 of temple bar galleries and studios, dublin. He has a book of illustrations- ‘Friendly Energy Beings’, which is for sale at:

That’s Nice….. 

Check out some of English illustrator Will Broome’s, erm illustrations below.

I came across his work when after reading about his new range for Topshop, which will be launched on April 19th.

They certainly look good enough to wear!  


Broome has described his illustrations thus: ‘Like a Care Bear that is beyond caring; My Little Pony on a trip to the glue factory; Paddington on the psychiatrist’s couch.’
