Joby Hickey

Joby Hickey has pioneered the School of New York in Ireland. An Irish artist with an international outlook, he trained in film before becoming a full-time artist.

One of the most brilliant of the new wave Irish painters, his paintings have found immediate critical and commercial acclaim.

A dedicated worker, he has travelled extensively. A master of form and colour he strives for sophistication through simplicity. The motto is: "Keep it Simple."

In July 2001, GALLERIES magazine accorded his work the ultimate honour by using his painting 'Boland Mills' for their cover.
