Margaret nolan is originally from Dublin, but moved to galway in the mid 80s. She is a fine art painter, producing both personal and commercial art. She is very interested in the urban landscape and loves buildings, architecture and the hustle and bustle of street life. In her pieces she likes to move buildings to challenge the viewer and cause them to wonder: 'Is that really where it should be?' In doing this she attempts to make the public more appreciative of their surroundings.
Margaret is most influenced by the Mexican muralists,such as Diago Riviera an artist whose work can be seen all over South America, depicting the life and colour of that time.

The Spanish Arch is one of Galway's most popular landmarks. It is painted in a very realistic way with a few buildings moved around to add a little curiosity. The swan and the seagull seem to sit for Margaret as if they are having their portraits painted!
