Artist Glenn Matthews is well known for his paintings of music, sport and movie icons including Kodaline, Marilyn Monroe and most recently Glen Hansard! Having grown up in Carryduff, Belfast he moved to Dublin to chase a girl! Before moving to Spain for 10 years, where he owned his own bar and played drums in a blues band, he then returned to Ireland in 2011, Glenn picked up the paint brush once more where notable pieces such as a tribute to Rory Gallagher was released on the album cover of 'The French Connection' album.
Glenn's painting was created from a photo taken on Christmas Eve of 2017 during a busk in order to raise money for the Dublin Simon Community.
