Tutor - Oisin Roche

Oisin Roche

Oisin Roche was born in Dublin in 1973. His first solo exhibition was with the Guinness Gallery Foxrock in 1992 and he has had several one man exhibitions of his paintings since Oisin’s work is based on the study of nature based on a classical foundation of drawing and composition. His skillful use of the expressive possibilities of oil paint such as impasto, chiaroscuro, and glazing – techniques he perfected from intensive study of the old masters – gives his paintings a lasting character.

Oisin’s paintings have been shown internationally, his last showing being at the BP Portrait Awards at the National Portrait Gallery London with his portrait of journalist and author John Waters.

Oisin Roche is an accomplished concept artist, fine artist and illustrator with years of experience as an instructor.
