A MALAHIDE artist is set to stage an exhibition in the Irish Embassy in Berlin next year.

Acclaimed artist Michael Killen has already held a successful exhibition of his sculptures, watercolours and drawings in the Embassy in Berlin over the past two months. He has now been invited back to hold a six-month exhibition in 2013 when Ireland will hold the EU Presidency. The original exhibition consisted of a number of sculptures in bronze and timber, a selection of large canvasses and a series of drawings and water-colours. It was mounted with the support of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and opened by the Ambassador of Ireland to Germany, His Excellency Dan Mulhall. A graduate of the Dun Laoghaire College of Art & Design, Michael spent a year at the Academy of Fine Art in Florence on an Italian Government scholarship before returning in the mid-'70s to work full-time in Ireland as a freelance, independent sculptor. He is known for public commissions throughout the island of Ireland and has completed private commissions here and in the UK, USA, France and Germany. His work is currently on show at The Doorway Gallery in Dublin's South Frederick Street and examples of his work can be seen on
