Cork artist Jason De Butléir

"I began making sketches from dinosaur magazines when I was ten years old then moved onto making landscapes with water colours.  When I went to secondary school I began making poetic pictures from my imagination.  I then went on to the Crawford College of Art & Design where I studied Fine art and Art History.  I am very interested in art from the modern period because I believe they hold the key’s to revolution of innovation in art.  But I also believe that studying all the periods of fine art is part of the progression."
