Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith meets painter and sculptor Marcel Vidal

During a visit to Marcel Vidal’s Temple Bar studio, it quickly becomes apparent that this young artist is having a very busy year indeed. In the spring he was the recipient of a Golden Fleece Award and he was also shortlisted for the inaugural Merrion Plinth Award.

Sculpture will also feature prominently in a solo exhibition he is planning for the Ashford Gallery in the RHA next year.
