Biography Anton Meenan
Anton Meenan is one of the Tory Island painters whose naïve style of painting has attracted international acclaim. He was encouraged to paint by Derek Hill, who supplied him with art materials and ready advice. Meenan studied art formally for a year at the Regional Technical College in Letterkenny, but abandoned his studies in preference for his so-called "primitive" style. His work was featured in a group exhibition of Tory Islander art at the University of Ulster Art Gallery in Belfast in 2003.
