Michael Stafford is a Visual Artist living and working in Dundalk. He has always been interested in art.

 “It’s something I have always done; my first memory is copying cartoon characters, then I got into graffiti art, outsider art and then into fine art”.


He balances his own practice with tutoring and working with community groups.


“My current work still involves an eclectic mixture of styles but much more free and instant. I move from tight control to loose painterly concerns and back again. Improvisation, memories, design and happy accidents are seasoned with a decent amount of failure.”

You can view some of Michael’s work, past and current, in the gallery. A list of previous exhibitions can be found here, and keep an eye on his blog for information on upcoming events!
