Neil Shawcross RHA RUA

Neil Shawcross was born in England in 1940 but has been an occupant of Northern Ireland since 1962. He was educated at Bolton College of Art and then at Lancaster College of Art and as a result has exhibited at many galleries extensively throughout Ireland, as well as in London, Hong Kong and the USA. He then went on to teach at the Belfast College of Art and now spends his retirement devoting his time to his own art. 

Neil’s works consists mainly of portraits and still life. The inspiration for his still life paintings come from his surroundings, and he is able to transform a incomplex subject to give it character through simple brush strokes. 

Shawcross’ work has been exhibited in places such as the Ulster Museum and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and has also been a five-time recipient of the Royal Ulster Academy Gold Medal. His new works are incredibly popular amongst collectors in both Ireland and abroad. In 1975 he became an associate of the Royal Ulster Academy, becoming an Academician in 1977.
