Suds McKenna

Suds McKenna is an Irish artist whose practice is rooted in drawing as a vehicle for performativity. Through the citation of disparate aesthetic traditions, McKenna seeks to communicate personal and societal identity through character-driven works that signal visual experience and influence.

His performative drawing process sees work realised across sculpture, painting, print-making, performance and publications, often employing humour in addressing issues of identity, personal narrative and mental wellbeing.
