Ciaran Buttress

Fine Artist


My passion is language, communication, and semiotics in the Arts. Having studied at Kansai University Japan, I'm a continually progressing intermediate speaker, listener, reader and writer  of the Japanese language. My dissertation was an investigation into the graphic communicative form of the Japanese written language and its history. These themes are visible in my work.


Cross-cultural communication is a strong thread in my life. Having volunteered and worked with such organisations, domestic and international, my work is continuously playing with subjective and objective ideas of understanding.

Please see full details of my practices, reaserch and diessertation below.
