Rod Coyne’s landscape painting focuses on risk-taking and experimentation. He founded Avoca Gallery and Painting School in 2003. Irish Fiction Laureate Sebastian Barry wrote that “his images could be straight out of my own memory, very strange and wonderful.” He has gained critical acclaim, shortlistings, grants, residencies, and international invitations.
Shane Sutton is a passionate and innovative artist with a strong interest in multiple disciplines. His talents span street art, graphic design, motion graphics, independent film, product design, and illustration. His work explores the intersection of art and technology.
The contemporary art gallery Galerie Seippel, with its four floors of exhibition spaces, is situated in the heart of Cologne. For the last 30 years, curator Ralf Seippel and his team have curated almost 200 exhibitions and projects in Cologne, in addition to curating and realizing projects internationally on all five continents.
