Fintan Whelan was born in Dublin and has spent his adult life in Ireland, Spain and Germany. After completing an Art and Design foundation course in Dublin Fintan went on to study visual communications and later worked in the publishing and printing industry for a number of years. During this time, he was exploring art media in a variety of ways and ultimately settled into a full-time art career twelve years ago. This turning point began in Spain with Fintan’s first solo exhibition in Granada. Since then, Fintan has exhibited his artwork widely in numerous countries and his art is found in private collections all over the world. Abstract thinking remains at the heart of his work.
