home: featured [ artist ]
We are always looking to discover artists that’s work we admire and we’d love to adorn our walls. The work of Philip O’Dwyer is no exception.
Gorgeous architectural and often brutalist inspiration fills his ink and acrylic pieces.
See more of his work on his website or on his Instagram feed
Philip O’Dwyer is a designer and visual artist. Born in 1974 in Dublin, he lives and works in London.
‘My practice uses drawing and painting to explore personal preoccupations with the built human environment. I’m interested in the interaction between an imaginary world of building codes, patterns, and perfect industrial objects and the real world of decay, repair and individual self-expression’.
