Jim Fitzpatrick is an Irish artist. He is best known for elaborately detailed work inspired by the Irish Celtic tradition. However, perhaps his most famous single piece is rather different in style, his iconic two-tone portrait of Che Guevara created in 1968 and based on a photo by Alberto Korda.
He has also produced much artwork for Thin Lizzy (most famously their Jailbreak album in 1976), for Sinéad O’Connor’s 2000 album Faith and Courage and for The Darkness’ 2003 single “Christmas Time (Don’t Let the Bells End)”.
Jim very kindly welcomed us to his home for a wonderful and wide-ranging interview covering his art, politics, music and famous meetings!
