Born in Pelletstown, Co. Dublin, Jonathan Wade was one of the most significant urban inspired artists Ireland has yet produced. His preoccupation with the urban and industrial landscape was largely a result of a Marxist philosophy combined with personal experience - he worked in an abattoir whilst studying by night at the National College of Art and was later employed in an oil company depot in London. His works have been described variously as ferocious, haunted and catastrophic.
