Declan (b. 1983) lives and works in Belfast. His work has been exhibited on a local, national and international level and his works appear in many public and private collections. Declan is the recipient of the Arts Society of Ulster Student Awards, the 132nd Royal Ulster Academy Printmaking Award and Arts Council of Northern Ireland SIAP Award. Since completing his Master of Fine Art, he has completed a year-long residency at the University of Ulster. From managing Northern Irelands longest running print workshop to teaching at the Belfast College of Art, working within the arts sector has broadened his discipline and scope of artistic practice. Much of Declanâ€™s multidisciplinary work was created in Array Studios in Belfast, were he was a studio member for 7 years. He is currently based at Flax Art Studios and is a member of Belfast Print Workshop. A lot of the work references (and ranges from) popular to socio-political issues. There is a keen interest in surveillance culture, observation and the figurative. Declan is an accomplished printmaker who not only creates his own prints, but has also editioned work for many artists, most notably, Tom Hammick, Victor Sloan and Clifford Rainey.
