Sean Lynch was born in County Kerry, Ireland in 1978 and now lives and works between Limerick, Ireland and London, UK. Graduating with a degree in Sculpture, a Masters in the History of Art and a HfBK in the Study of Fine Arts at the Stadelschule, Frankfurt am Main, Lynch leads a multi-media practice that positions him somewhere between artist and storyteller.
Revealing unwritten stories, forgotten histories, extracting alternative readings of place, events and artefacts through his works he refers to a contemporary form of the Irish Bardic tradition.
He has recently held solo exhibitions at Modern Art Oxford and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. Sean Lynch artworks have been exhibited at the Camden Arts Centre, London, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, neugerriemschneider, Berlin and Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt am Main.
Sean Lynch is representing Ireland at the 56th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, 2015.
