Lives and works in Cork, Ireland


Art, Art History and Appreciation Leaving Cert Honours

While largely self-taught, Cian’s art journey was informed by six years of studying art, art history, and appreciation during his secondary school years. Additionally, he took art classes while working as a framer, learning under the guidance of another artist who helped him develop and experiment with new materials and painting techniques. His dedication and profound passion for individual expression have been instrumental in refining his skills and shaping his artistic identity today.
