Tighe O’Donoghue

American (1942)

About the artist:

Tighe O’Donoghue/Ross was born in New York City in 1942. He received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. at New York University, graduating magna cum laude. He is a world renowned printmaker and sculptor whose work is in the permanent collections of such prestigious institutions as The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Smithsonian National Collection of Fine Art in Washington, D.C. and the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris. He is an American and an Irish citizen, living with his family in County Kerry for the past 20 years. O’Donoghue/Ross’ oeuvre is full of symbol and surrealism, his imagery playful, yet profound. Many of his images contain allusions to Irish and Celtic myths, but he gleans material from all faiths, mythologies and philosophies when compiling his surreal World of O'Donoghue/Ross. He is unusual in being adept at numerous media, from painting to sculpture, etching/aquatint/mezzotint/engraving to watercolour. He has been creating digital images for a number of years now, and has reached a mastery of the medium in a way few other artists have attained. O'Donoghue/Ross' family share his vision and dedication to the creative process.
