Biography John B. Vallely
John B. Vallely was born in Armagh in 1941 and is now the city's most acclaimed resident artist, not to mention one of Ireland's most popular painters. In 1959 he enrolled at the Belfast College of Art, where he studied under the late Tom Carr. Vallely went on to further study at Edinburgh Art College, and during his
early years traveled widely in search of subjects.
However, his work has returned time and again to those local subjects that have most engaged him: traditional Irish culture, in particular sport and music. Music and painting are inseparable concerns of Vallely's. He is a skilled musician himself and some forty years ago founded the Armagh Pipers Club, still in existence today.
