Michael O'Doherty

Michael O’Doherty is a Dublin-based contemporary visual artist, who has recently completed a degree in Fine Art Painting at NCAD.

Drawing from his previous experiences in design and construction, Michael’s workis inspired by metropolitan overcrowding, and in particular by the architectural overload and traffic congestion that largely characterises these densely populated environments.

In response to the current housing crisis in Ireland, Michael has begun to explore how dead spaces can be reinvented and utilised to their maximum potential. Consequently, his latest works incorporate aspects of two cutting-edge design trends –Transterior and Japandi – which draw much of their dynamism from approaches to living that bring the outdoors indoors and the indoors outdoors.

To bring his interior artworks outdoors, and vice versa, Michael’s latest collection uses weatherproof materials, such as pressure-treated woods and high-end marine paints, to create an array of artworks, which range from affordable and simplistic floral designs to more complex and sophisticated architectural designs and sculptures.
