Enniscorthy art student Kevin Roche was a winner in a competition organised by the Brickhouse Art Project of Iconic Offices in Dublin, finishing in third place and netting a prize of €500 plus the chance to have his work permanently displayed in the city centre building.

Kevin is in his second year studying Fine Art Painting and Education at the National College of Art and Design and is interested in the Avant Garde movement of the 20th century in particular the Italian Avant Garde movement led by Lucio Fontana, Concetto Spaziale (Spatial Concept) and the Space Age Aesthetic.

He looks to Art Povera in terms of the materials he uses.

The Brickhouse in Grand Canal Dock, Dublin 2 is the latest shared working space from Iconic Offices which invited submissions from up and coming art and design students from IADT and NCAD to fill the walls with original and exciting pieces in order to bring the space to life.

Twenty finalists were chosen including Kevin Roche and Jack Barrett (IADT) from Wexford town whose work is also hanging in the building.
