About Ta Byrne

I'm drawn to the complex nature of human nature and the emotions that we possess. I love to blend emotional figurative references with elements of surrealism and create paintings that clearly show emotions through movement or expression.

Picasso and Lowry inspire me; their art is instantly recognisable and resonates with my own impulsive creation of art in its abstract form. I like to express emotion in my paintings, much of which is drawn from my childhood and personal experiences.

You'll see that I'm hugely passionate about colour. I love to create paintings that encourage its viewer to stop and explore the depth, or layer, of each piece. I use the finest oils, traditional brushes and my trusty palette knife. I like to feel when I paint. Often, I have the finished piece in my mind's eye before I even start.

Happily, my work is dotted across the world in over forty countries. I come from very humble beginnings and a rural farm in northern Thailand. To see my work in homes across Europe, Asia, North America, the Middle East and Australia is thrilling and an honour for me.

I want my art and people to possess a character that makes them unique and for each painting to be at the heart of a home and provide immense joy and happiness for years to come.
