We are delighted to announce our next exhibition ‘Mindscape’, by contemporary Irish artists Sean Atmos and Colm Weakliam.
Exhibition Launch: Friday 22nd October from 6-9pm.
With Complimentary drinks by Jameson.
The exhibition will continue to 6 November, opening weekly Wed – Sat, 10am – 4pm.
Sean Atmos and Colm Weakliam are two Dublin based, contemporary visual artists.
Both artists share a dynamic, mindful approach to their art making processes, using layered techniques to draw the viewer in.
With their upcoming exhibition at Atelier Now titled ‘Mindscape’, Sean and Colm have created new collections of work to bring viewers on a visual journey into their minds. The works allude to the internal and ever changing landscape that the artists navigate in the pursuit of creating new work.
The process of artmaking is rewarding, expressive, cathartic and challenging all at once. With ‘Mindscape’ the artists strive to bring the essence of this energetic experience to the viewer through the use of vibrant colours, abstract shapes, layered techniques and a playful, yet considered, use of perspective.
When discussing their individual artistic practices, it’s clear that both artists share a mindful approach to their making. The artworks themselves have been created specifically with varying perspectives, so that viewers can spatially interact with them. They are more than just a sum of their parts, with the use of carefully calculated graphic shapes and bold overlays – the artworks aim to transport the viewer on a journey inward and bring the works to completion.

As a multidisciplinary artist, Sean Atmos’s specialises in the areas of original canvas works, fine art prints and large-scale murals. Coming from an established background in graffiti, Sean began his creative journey in 2006 and has been actively developing his practice since.
Colm Weakliam explores geometric optical illusion, spatial perspective and light. Coming from a background in Fine Art, Colm’s practice takes shape through painting and sculpture which is inspired by architectural forms, and treads the grounds between two and three dimensions.
