|Divali, Southern Main Road by Erik Feely|
Erik Feely read Art History at Trinity College, Dublin, and spent one year on scholarship in Italy before qualifying with an M.A. in 1982. He also simultaneously graduated in Graphic Design thus combining art theory and practice. On his moving to Trinidad he was working in the abstract geometric style and exhibited several times. From 1997-2002 he lived in Caracas where he taught at the Armando Reveron Art School and the Central University. Specialising in watercolours, he showed in the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Caracas in May 2000. Interest in installations and social criticism led him to hold two individual shows at the Caracas experimental Galleries, Espacio Unus and Espacio Nexus. In 2004-2005 he held shows in Dublin and Rome--courtesy 101 Art Gallery.
