An Artistic Eye

How do you become an artist?

What’s the best thing about being an artist?

What do you do all day?

‘An Artistic Eye’ is a series of videos in which these questions and more are asked of visual artists.

Each of the artists shared their unique take on how, and when, they decided to become an artist, how their work has developed, what being an artist means to them, and the things that they are excited about.

Presented by The Douglas Hyde in partnership with Dublin City Arts Office and Dublin City Council on the occasion of Cruinniú na nÓg 2021. With special thanks to the artists, Margarita Cappock, Karen McGrath and John Fay.
