Irish artist exhibits at Expo Milano
The acclaimed Irish artist, John Keating, has been invited to exhibit in Milan during Expo Milano 2015. The exhibition, The Table of Life - La Tavola del Vivere Del Convivere, celebrates the theme of Expo, Nutrire La Pianhetra, and runs from April 27 to May 15 in the Palazzo Bovara, Corso Venezia.
Keating's exhibition is curated by the eminent art critic and scholar, Professor Stafano Crespi. The Italian critic, Fausto Lorenzi, has said of the Tipperary-born artist: "Keating gives us definite 'still life' with luxuriant and thick pulps, sensual and rising, containing the whole ancient tradition of the sacred offering typical of the genre."
Keating's work is constantly being exhibited internationally, most recently in London, Turin, Beijing, Rome and Monaco. He has received three major international awards, including a gold medal of honour at the Olympic Fine Art 2012 at the London Barbican Centre.
