Welcome to the world of CiCi

the creative alias of Irish mixed-media artist Claire O’Shea

Nestled on the picturesque Southwest coast of Ireland, CiCi brings her vibrant vision to life with energetic compositions and bold, saturated colours.

CiCi’s art is a dynamic blend of styles, effortlessly moving between abstract pieces, portraits, and figurative works. Her expressive mixed-media creations are more than just art; they are heartfelt responses to both personal and global events, offering a hopeful counterpoint to the challenges we face.

Deeply influenced by nature, especially the untamed beauty of the Atlantic coast where she grew up, CiCi weaves the essence of the sea into her work. Her goal is to share this vibrant aesthetic, filled with light and hope, to bring more colour and joy into the lives of those who connect with her art. 

Join CiCi on this colourful journey and experience the energy and emotion that define her unique artistic voice.

Private viewing appointments are available at CiCi's home gallery studio near the picturesque town of Kinsale in Co. Cork.

BrightSide Duo Art Exhibition

Cnoc Bui Arts Centre, Union Hall; May 2024

Exhibition launching on Thursday 9th May with a wine reception from 6-8pm at Cnoc Bui Arts Centre located in Union Hall, P18X274

Water gives us life and affects how we live it. Our coast helps to define country, culture, shared and individual values. It's forever moving and yet one of our biggest constants.

How do you feel when you head down to the water's edge?

Artists Angela Wilson and Claire O'Shea live by the Irish coast and know that a love of the water is something many of us have in common. 

The water affects how the artists perceive themselves and how they in turn consider the world. Angela and Claire have never visited the coast without coming away feeling better than when they arrived.

The artworks in this exhibition are dedicated to how the coast inspires, energises and sometimes mystifies but never fails to show the artists a brighter side of life. 

Angela and Claire invite you to view their artworks of varied mediums. Join in this visual celebration of common ground, coastal living and striving for finding the Brightside.
