Artists Bio : Arthur K. Maderson

Listed in The Sixth Edition of 'ADAMS, A Buyers Guide to Irish Art' , Arthur Maderson has been chosen for a special mention as an ARTIST TO LOOK OUT FOR.


Arthur Karel Maderson - was born in 1942, in London, England. He studied fine Art from 1959 to 1963 at Camberwell School of Art, London, where in 1963 he won the Anna Berry Award in open competition with final year graduates from all leading art schools in England. Maderson's parallel interest in both psychology and psychiatry led him into the field of art therapy. He was an art therapist for 9 years at Park Prewett Psychiatry Hospital, Basingstoke, Hampshire.


Although Maderson continued to paint on a regular basis, it was only in 1982, at the age of 40 that he felt sufficiently confident to exhibit. From this period, he has enjoyed considerable success with all major shows being sold out. Maderson's success in the UK has been replicated in the Republic where his reputation as a painter of distinction and passion is firmly established. Reclusive by nature, Arthur Maderson does not move in artistic circles, give interviews or take any interest in discussing, let alone promoting his work.


He works at a frantic pace with dedication, determination and unflagging vigour and energy. His life as a painter is shared between Cappoquin, a village in the Blackwater Valley in County Waterford, and a small hamlet high in a largely unpopulated mountainous region of the Cevenne, in the South of France. Arthur maderson has exhibited at the Royal Academy, The Royal West of England Academy where in 1987 he won the Cornellisen Award and the Royal Hibernain Academy in Dublin winning the Abbey Studio Award for the most distinguished painting in 1993.


He has represented Ireland in a number of prestigious shows and his exhibitions are proof of his continuing output of work which never ceases to impress.
