Cathal O'Briain is a native of Dublin and owner at O'Briain Pianos. He studied Fine Art in Dundrum College of Further Education and Presentation Design in Mountyjoy Square DIT.
Currently he specialises in the preservation of rare art case period pianos. This work involves the complete rebuilding and restoration of upright and grand pianos to their former glory; as they would have looked and sounded in the first year of their life. Upon completion, he tunes and regulates them to perform their optimum best.
As a hobby Cathal enjoys sketching and painting on location in Oil and Watercolour. His colourisations, turbulent landscapes, and moody skys, are all loosely created through intense observation of light and its affect upon the environment. His art is not for sale but can be viewed by appointment, or when visiting his piano showroom.
