Colin Flack was born in 1973 in County Antrim and has had a keen interest in painting from an early age. He is a self-taught artist like so many of his peers including Dan O’Neill, Gerard Dillon and George Campbell. Colin’s painting has progressed a lot over the last number of years earning him high acclaim and resulting in sell-out exhibitions throughout Ireland.
Colin has a unique style predominantly depicting landscapes and seascapes around Ireland, borne out of his great love of the countryside. His use of oil combined with the pallet knife enables him to create a sense of movement, freedom and three-dimension which is evident in all his works.
Colin has a thorough understanding of oils and is known for his distinct blend of colours complementing particular scenes from the surrounding environment. His work has met with such high approval and afforded him a personal invitation to exhibit in Dublin in 2005 in a private show with internationally acclaimed artists such as William Scott, J.B. Vallely, William Crozier, Neil Canning, Kevin Sharkey and Sean McSweeney.
Over the last three years Colin has had five successive sell-out exhibitions in Dublin, Cork and Belfast. His work has now become highly collectable and is held in private collections throughout the world including the USA, Canada and Australia.
