Welcome! I’m Cathal O’ Regan, an Irish artist and designer. First I’d like to thank everyone for helping me on my quest. Friends and family, patrons and well wishers alike. Also everyone who has imparted some of their wisdom to me.
Every CoR commission is unique, so you know there will never be another like it. I work with any medium within reason but graphic pen and ink work is my favourite. It’s very versatile and the tools can be carried anywhere. I use art to raise awareness on important topics because it’s the purest form of media left. To understand, to break the mould and above all because it’s my passion. I believe it’s my true purpose in this life. I’ve done private commissions of animals and family crests. I’ve also done commercial art such as book covers, commissions for restaurants/pubs, company logos and t-shirt designs. There’s even an unfinished comic in the works.
My art speaks for itself but feel free to contact me anytime. All I ask for is a connection to the subject so I can commit to it with all my heart. Thank you for reading.
My style comes from my stubbornness to try not to learn or copy what is already out there in this world of art. The genesis of my style portrays that art has many interpretations and translations, its a language of its own, a feeling and a rush. Art has to come from the inside out, its far too easy otherwise. I’ve worked hard to make my art my own and I will continue to do so regardless of the consequences.
I’m not a state-sponsored artist. I don’t work for grants. I do not teach. My convictions are my own. I can’t be muted, forced to push an agenda or spread propaganda. Keeping things raw keeps me honest and keeps me away from the ‘air brush’ and creating an illusion of things being better than they actually are. Honesty is the best policy.
The world is my influence. It doesn’t matter if it intrigues me or bothers me. With a fleeting look, the world is simple, but the longer you gaze, the greater the complexity of it all. The subconscious is a powerful force. Take a look at my artwork page and you’ll understand. Shoot first, apologize later.
Here’s some some high quality examples of my work. If you like what you see, there’s plenty more where these came from.
