,Welcome...This is the home of KM Gavaghan's art.
I was made in 1970 in the UK by the Irish and I am an self taught artist and creator of the Ghost Gallery.
For me, real original art that can stir ones soul, provoke ones thought, take one to somewhere emotional and provide a moment of escape. Art talks to ones inner self and brings people together.
I paint, create and exhibit art because i want people to have a connection to my work.. I want people to have a moment of escape from the harder moments of life. I paint because i believe in the search for colour in dark places. Life can imperfect with perfect moments.
I believe, that by connecting with a work of art that captures you, it can give one more of those moments of escape by spiriting you away in ones mind to a place of memory, a moment of happiness or sadness, love, calm or fire that is held within ones mind and soul, maybe a memory of a place, person or action or even just a dream...
I work in various mediums, oil paint, acrylic, inks, digital. I am self taught and my work is organic and born from core emotions and memories. Strongly influenced by my feelings, good and bad, my surroundings and life experiences. I only really took to painting art in my 30s but had a long standing, undeveloped love of creating and viewing art from a young age.
I had (Tourette) Tics from the age of 12 and this developed into anxiety attacks in my twenties. It was a constant interruption and challenge in my life, my education, my work and my love of art, however, art was also an escape from the challenge of living with 'Tics' and has strongly influenced the person i am today and the art i create.
I sincerely hope you enjoy my art, and, if you want to go a step further and talk about commissioning some art work, paintings, giclee prints or illustration for posters, books, drop me a contact and have a chat...I am very friendly, also if you get a chance, come along to one of the pop up Ghost Gallery exhibitions.
