Ep.231 Dameon Preistly - Ministry of Arts Podcast
In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Dameon Preistly (@dameon_priestly_artist)
Dameon Preistly's work focuses on times and events of social and cultural change, often set in an historical context, but with direct relevance to the present.
These stories are intensively researched and results in works with a strong narrative and an emphasis on the people involved in the unfolding dramas.
The motivation behind his work is directly related to his childhood growing up in 1970s Belfast. History, culture, politics and social injustice have interested me since an early age.
In tandem with his personal work, he also regularly undertake private commissions, including portraits.
Dameon has sold extensively nationally and internationally. He now lives and works in Rochester, UK.
