Ken Moroney was born in North London in 1949. Ken is a gifted and
versatile painter, his small oil studies being vigorously and swiftly
executed. The fluent technique is derived from the practice of painting
“en plein air”, which gathered pace in the late 19th Century.
Oil on canvas 19 1/2" x 15 1/2" signed

Ken Moroney was born on the 14th February 1949 in South London. Of Anglo Irish parentage, his father was typical of his generation and worried about Ken’s artistic temperament which he viewed as effeminate. As a result Ken took up boxing and won a gold medal for South London in his teens. His art continued to flourish with his trademark striking use of colour. His main medium is oils and he favours romantic subjects of Edwardian times. Ken has travelled extensively and spent 2 years working for major galleries in New York. The Royal Academy nominated him in 1976 as being one of the few promising young artists to emerge this century: "Ken Moroney has considerable talent, any painting purchased now can only be seen as a sound long term investment."
Ken Moroney's work now hangs in many important collections and has had paintings exhibited at The Royal Academy (London), The Beau
(Paris) and the Kline Galleries (Canada). Kens work has also been exhibited in Frost and Reed, Bourne Gallery, Hollywood Road Gallery,
Thompson's Gallery, Gallery Kaleidoscope, David Messum's Gallery, John Davies in Stowe-on-the-Would, Duncan Miller London and American Connection. More recently exhibited at the Arts Club, 40 Dover Street, Mayfair, London.
