Steeped in the traditions of this island, Barry Kerr’s creative work – both as a painter and as a musician – expresses the very heart of Irish life. Originating from the southern shores of Lough Neagh in Co. Armagh, Kerr is now living and working in Dublin.
Evocative, empathetic and emotional, Kerr’s paintings animate the very soul of his subject matter – be it landscape, portrait or poignant depictions of Irish life. He paints expressively in oils and his work is instantly recognisable.
One of Ireland’s most accomplished musicians, singers and song-writers, Kerr’s art is coloured by his musical experiences.
