Jack Tierney was born in Milton Keynes, UK in 1986.
He currently works out of his studio in Cornwall, having spent the previous ten years based in Bristol, UK.
The subjects of his paintings are the everyday objects, people and events that reflect his surroundings. They might be dogs, a still life with flowers or people on a night out.
Tierney is influenced by his background in Graffiti art, the playful brushwork and bold colours of the 20th century fauvists and the unapologetic fun of naïve art.
His work is the re-interpretation of familiar subjects in unfamiliar ways, using form, colour and composition to create paintings that are intentionally slightly at odds with themselves.
Jack has shown in solo and group shows over the last decade and can be found in many private collections.
