Con Campbell

For further information please phone Darach on +44 (0)28 7083 4600 or email megan@irishartgroup.com

Con Campbell was born in Gortin Bush, County Tyrone in 1946. When Con was a young boy, he and his family moved to Belfast.

During the “Troubles” in Belfast, Campbell spent a lot of time painting illustrations of the conflict through the perceptions of children. His first piece of work was displayed in 1972.

After Con had exhausted his paintings on the “Troubles”, he returned to focus on what he admired the most, painting animals – specifically horses. His ‘Black Beauty’ painting is an exceptionally stunning sample of this era in Campbell’s work. This interest in animals was highly influenced by his family.

Con Campbell is very enthusiastic about his painting, as it is said he has traveled considerably throughout Ireland, studying the physiology and movement of horses.
