John O Connell graduated from the National College of Art and design in 2001 with an honours degree in Fine Art. Since leaving college john has been developing an artists studio complex in Dublin City centre along with some of his fellow ex-students. John has also set up a Website for the studios which acts as a site for on- going web based projects.
Johns practical work is thoughtful and inventive. The work is a play with space, a theatrical space. In the work John uses everyday situations and objects juxtaposed with makeshift sets and props creating a surreal world, a world that appears strangely ordinary with a sense of becoming something bigger.
