George Carpendale is an Irish artist from Co. Kilkenny. Primarily a self taught artist, he is inspired by Irish country life that has surrounded him since his childhood. George has been painting for over 20 years and has experimented with many different artistic styles during this time. He has always been inspired by the work of the old masters and classical European art but equally by the skill and ideas of contemporary artists working today. George brings these two contrasting styles together in a complementary way by creating the Iolrachas artistic movement. In these hugely turbulent and rapidly changing times, the ability of Ireland as a nation to embrace change while being sympathetic and patriotic to our deep and historical identity has emerged as one our greatest strengths. Ireland continues to embrace multiculturalism & pluralism in an open and receptive way. The Iolrachas Art Movement is a unique Irish Art Movement and seeks to reflect 21st century Ireland through art. This Irish Art Movement was founded in 2017 by George Carpendale. Contrasting artistic styles are brought together in a single art work and aims to reflect the open minded and pluralist outlook of Ireland as a nation. The Iolrachas Art Movement sympathetically reflects the Irish cultural identity through a classical style of painting and simultaneously depicts 21st century Ireland's contemporary way of life. Iolrachas is the Irish translation for Pluralism. George’s paintings are on display in private collections in Ireland, UK, France and the U.S.
