ALAN HOGAN - Art Catalog - Finland Alan Hogan is a visual artist born in Ireland and now based in Finland.
After graduating from the College of Marketing & Design in Dublin in 1990 he left his desire to be a traditional artist on hold for several years to work full-time as a compositor and print platemaker.
Since moving to Finland he has reignited his passion for painting and has become a full-time artist, holding exhibitions in unlikely and contrasting venues from summer cafes, restaurants, shopping centres, large cultural centres and art halls, and even his own 'art' garage which he uses as a home studio! His most recent exhibitions during 2010/13 include Helsinki Design Week, the Sanomatalo centre, Rikhardinkatu library, Kanneltalo & Stoa Cultural Halls and Jade Gallery in Helsinki, aswell as participation in two Konstrundan art events in southern Finland. The artist travelled to Hong Kong and Australia in December 2013 to present several commissioned works personally to his art patrons. In 2014 the Irish Ambassador to Finland shall be displaying a selection of Alan Hogan's paintings to foreign diplomats and guests at his official residence in Helsinki. In May 2014, he will participate in a group exhibition as part of the Helsinki International Artists Association being held at the Russian Centre of Science and Culture in Helsinki. He will also take part in the Konstrundan art event in Finland during September 2014.
