Ronan Bowes is an award-winning artist creating abstract paintings and objects. His current work is an amalgamation of constructed, deconstructed and reconstructed studio materials - pigments, canvas, wood, paper or unusual materials, in painted 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional handmade forms. The life, death and rebirth of these studio materials are core thoughts during his process. Creating art for him, began and continues as a symbolic resource where autobiographical elements, feelings, emotions as well as considerations about society find expression.

Bowes obtained a Frist Class Degree in Fine Art from John Moores Art School (Liverpool, UK) in 2008. Since his graduation he has worked both as an artist and curator in UK and abroad and has extensively exhibited in Northern Ireland, England, Australia and USA. Among others he showcased his work with the Delphian Gallery (London, UK), Boyle Arts Festival (Roscommon, Ireland), El Triunfo (New York, USA) and Saatchi Art online. After several years abroad, in 2019 he relocated in his hometown Omagh, Co. Tyrone N. Ireland.
