Francis Tansey was born in Dublin in 1959. He Studied at The National College of Art and Design (1978 - 1983), specialising in abstract art. In 1985 he became the first artist in residence at Butler Gallery in Co. Kilkenny, where his brightly coloured geometric acrylic paintings caused great interest. Tansey's unique distillation and interpretation of Colourism, gained him immediate recognition worldwide and particularly in Ireland. He first rose to prominence with his inclusion in R.O.S.C. in 1988 as the youngest artist ever to have exhibited in this prestigious International Exhibition. He has lived and worked in Co. Kilkenny for many years.
