Peter Killeen


The Medieval Bestiary, an exhibition of new work by Peter Killeen will take place at Solomon from 31 August - 24 September 2023 


Born in Dublin in 1977, Peter Killeen began working for the highly regarded Cast Bronze Foundry in 1996 where he was first introduced to the Cire Perdue (lost wax) method of bronze casting and subsequently began casting his own work. In 2003, he travelled to Australia to work with the Australian Bronze Sculpture House in Sydney where he became head bronze caster. After years of working alongside some of Ireland’s leading sculptors Killeen has become a master of his craft and continues to be hands-on at every stage of the casting process.  


Killeen’s sculptures have been exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy, the Oireachtas, the Wexford Opera Festival and at Sculpture in Context. His works are included in both public and private collections including AIB Bank, Wexford County Council, Adare Manor and in private collections in the UK, Japan, USA, Australia and Switzerland.
