Ronan Goti was born in 1978 in Dublin. He studied fine art in Ballyfermot Senior Art College from 1996 to 1999 before attending N.C.A.D. in 2000. After a further 2 years of self-study he began exhibiting in mid-2002 while regularly attending life drawing sessions at the R.H.A.

Goti has experienced significant success during his career, first achieving recognition as one of Irelandís most accomplished seascape painters, most notably for his depictions of children playing on Dublinís shorelines. In 2003 and 2004 he had two sell out solo exhibitions and in 2015 he received two awards at the Royal Hibernian Academy. This followed solo exhibitions with the Oisin Gallery in Dublin in 2011, 2012 and 2013 which also all sold out.

One of the most exciting elements in Gotiís work is his treatment of light and its effects. Strips of land, sea, sand and sky have an extraordinary ethereal tonal effect. Each painting manages to encapsulate the temperament of Irelandís climate with its constant changes and infinite nuances of colour and light.

In Gotiís seascapes with figures, the characters often appear immersed in their surroundings, or at times show a momentary harmony- seemingly unaware of their dynamic and uninhibited surroundings. His paintings however are essentially about an intimacy between people, nature and the atmosphere of a place which captivate the viewer.

Goti continues to be one of Irelandís most sought after artists and his work can be found in many public and private collections throughout Ireland and the UK.
