Creative Ireland: The Visual Arts will fast become the most desirable visual arts book this season.
Creative Ireland: The Visual Arts presents an attractive record of the early 21st century contemporary visual arts in Ireland with 100 artists who have been selected for their specific contribution to the contemporary arts in the first years of the 21st Century. Aimed at a general audience, as well as the art connoisseur and enthusiast, each artist is profiled with an iconic example of their practice shown in full colour. The texts are engaging as they explain Ireland within the context of the early 21st century, and the impact that this has had socially, economically and culturally.
