Regan O’Callaghan is an artist who lives in London, England.
He moved from New Zealand to the United Kingdom in 1993 where he later studied religious studies and art including the technique of icon writing (painting). He has painted a number of important commissions including an icon for Saint Paul’s Cathedral London. Beginning October 2013 Regan wil begin an M.A in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art.
Today Regan’s art practice has built on the technique of icon writing combining contemporary themes with traditional techniques. His Maori heritage can be seen as a strong influence in his art with the Koru (spiral) a symbol of continutiy and new life appearing in much of his work. In 2013 Regan completed a 3 months artist residency in the Peruvian Amazon.
