‘I can do without anything — apart from love that is’
ARTIST Kevin Sharkey was born in Dublin in 1961 and brought up in Killybegs, Co Donegal.
His art career began at the age of 12 when he experimented with oils on canvas and bright colours, inspired by the Donegal landscape and scenery. His works have been exhibited in Dublin and internationally, including in London, Ibiza, Amsterdam and New York.
One of his best known works is ‘Moolah’ — a life-sized cow covered in euro banknotes which is a symbol of Ireland’s Celtic Tiger years. His current exhibition, Lazarus, is at the Basement Gallery, 28 South Frederick Street, Dublin 2 until the end of this month.
He will have a music single — entitled The Holy Show — coming out on itunes on December 1. To see his paintings, visit kevin-sharkey.com
