Sean Lynch was born in County Kerry, Ireland in 1978 and now lives and works between Limerick, Ireland and London, UK. Lynch graduated with a HfBK from Stadelschuke, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, an MA in History of Art and Design, University of Limerick, Ireland and BA Sculpture, Limerick School of Art and Design, Ireland. 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.
Lynch represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale in 2015. He has recently held solo exhibitions at Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin, Ireland (2017); Charles H. Scott Gallery, Vancouver, Canada (2017); Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, Ireland (2016); Exeter Phoenix Art, Exeter, USA (2016); Rose Art Museum, Boston, USA (2016); Ronchini Gallery, London, UK (2015); Modern Art Oxford, Oxford, UK (2014); Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Dublin, Ireland (2013); . His artworks have been exhibited at the Camden Arts Centre, London, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, Neugerriemschneider, Berlin and Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt am Main.
