    Inspired by Sinead O’Connor Nothing Compares 2 U is the title of this artwork by Jack Coulter on display at Sotheby’s first ever selling exhibition in Dublin.  New artworks by the renowned 29 year old Belfast artist who is best known for his paintings of extreme visceral quality are on display in a show titled A Song For You.  Coulter has synaesthesia, a neurological condition whereby he experiences sound as colour, and is inspired by songs of artists like Sinead O’Connor, Harry Styles (who collects his work), The Corrs, Blondie and many others. At the Cadogan Hall in London in 2018 he painted Mendlessohn’s Violin Concerto live with the London Chamber Orchestra at a performance that was streamed worldwide. Other synesthete artists include David Hockney and Joan Mitchell. A debut exhibition by the artist at Sotheby’s in London last November appealed to buyers right around the world, including some celebrities, and was a huge success.  The exhibition is on display at Sotheby’s, Molesworth St., Dublin until August 4 and available there to view and purchase online until  August 31.

    “You can’t Change the Music of your Soul”, Jack Coulter’s debut solo exhibition, opens at Sothebys in London today and runs until December 15. Along with artists like van Gogh and Hockney, Coulter has synaesthesia and experiences sound as colour.  Born in Belfast in 1994 the artist has been making waves with his multi-layered music inspired paintings.  The Financial Times has described him as one of the most popular abstract artists emerging today and he has been featured in Forbes 30 under 30 list.  This exhibition includes 25 paintings that are a direct response to a broad musical catalogue.
