William O’Neill is a visual artist living and working in Meath, Ireland. He graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Art Painting from the National College of Art and Design in 2009.
His paintings are process driven. He meticulously creates still life scenes which he photographs and works from. He is interested in these still life arrangements for their angles, shapes, the positive/negative space they create, how the objects interact with each other and their potential as subject matter.
‘Luminous Gatherings’, his first solo exhibition, took place at Kevin Kavanagh Gallery in April 2022. He was recipient of the Solstice Visual Arts Award at Solstice Arts Centre (2021). In 2019, he was shortlisted for the RHA Hennessy Craig Award. Group exhibitions include, Surveyor 2021, Surveyor 2020, Solstice Arts Centre, (2020 & 2021); 188th, 189th, 190th & 191st, and 193rd RHA Annual Exhibitions, RHA (2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021); 139th RUA Annual Exhibition, Royal Ulster Academy of Arts, (2020); Winter Open 2019, Rua Red, (2019); Island Life, Kevin Kavanagh Gallery (2018); Island Life, Custom House Studios (2018).
