Following his sell-out debut at the Davis Gallery, Dublin, in 2002 he has had twelve solo shows and has exhibited at numerous group shows including RA, RHA and RUA annual exhibitions.

In 2007 he won the Curator’s Award and the Bank of Ireland Emerging Artist Award at EV+A (Ireland’s pre-eminent contemporary arts showcase).

Internationally he has exhibited solo at the European Parliament, Brussels and was part of the Irish representation at the Florence Biennale 2005. He is a regular exhibitor at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London. His paintings are included in many corporate and private collections worldwide.

Tony’s work defies labels and ranges from small local scenes to very large scale contemporary realism but blue skies, bright colour, stark contrast and irregular perspective are recurring style motifs.
