The KT Artists Story

Welcome to KT Artists. We are an online store specializing in contemporary and Irish art. KT Artists began it’s journey on 18th April 2019, founded by Barry McCaffrey. His father, KT McCaffrey is an artist and has been painting his own unique style of art for over twenty years.

KT McCaffrey attended the National College of Art and Design and became a graphic designer. Since 2007, KT has created more than 80 works of art.

KT McCaffrey creates contemporary Irish art like nobody else. KT’s unique style and striking use of vibrant colour makes his work instantly recognizable. He loves to paint subject’s that are close to his heart such as portraits of Irish playwrights, musicians and tales from Irish Folklore. KT’s passion for storytelling and Irish culture takes center stage in his artworks.

KT Artists showcases KT McCaffrey’s unique collection of contemporary Irish art. We believe that art is more than just a beautiful painting. Our exclusive collection of artworks capture emotion, the beauty of traditional Irish culture and exciting moments in time from tales of Irish Folklore and mythology.

We are passionate about what we do and pride ourselves on the quality of our handmade prints. Our prints are produced to an archival quality with care and attention to an international standard. We work closely with the Copper House Gallery in Dublin to ensure that our prints look incredible in your home.
