The well-known Irish artist Charlie Tyrell was presented with the Graphic Studio Wilkinson Award at the recent Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibition.  The award is named in honour of the late Graham Wilkinson, one of the co-founders of B&A in 1986.

Ipsos B&A is a long-term sponsor of the arts and continues to run and fund a formal commissioning programme, now in its 35th  year, with the Graphic Studio Dublin. It has twice been awarded by Business to Arts for its annual print series, commissioned and given to clients of Ipsos B&A every Christmas.

Tyrell has represented Ireland at the Paris Biennale and the International Festival of Painting at Cagnes-Sur-Mer. He lives and works in Allihies on the Beara Peninsula West Cork. His work is abstract expressionist and he is a member of Aosdána.   Coincidentally Tyrell was previously chosen as B&A’s annual print maker in 1993, although he was independently selected as the recipient of the 2024 RHA Wilkinson Award.
