Conor Mcilroy


Born in Salisbury, Conor is a young and talented artist, both technically and conceptually.

Being predominantly self-taught, he showed a profound passion for art from an early age, leading him to study at Bournemouth Arts University. This enabled access to a multiplicity of media from paint and drawing materials to clay. Being inspired by high contrast, black and white photograph portraits, Conor chooses charcoal as his main medium to achieve depth and accuracy.

Recently receiving commissions from local clients has allowed Conor to develop his style and share his work with a wider audience.

Conor moves to Canada in 2017 to continue his pursuit of art and further develop his style in hopes to appeal to audiences overseas.
