Art Exhibition by Grégoire Mathias

Grégoire Mathias (ENSBA), official artist of the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA), will be showcasing his latest works at Howbert & Mays, 16 Clare Street, Dublin 2, from May 16th to June 22nd.

This premiere exhibition is hosted by Howbert & Mays at their 16 Clare Street location. Their predecessor was the well-known Greene’s bookshop, an establishment visited by multiple generations of Irish authors, and nestled amid significant Joycean landmarks. So to honour this literary heritage, Greg Mathias, whose father was an antiquarian bookseller, is preparing a special painting in homage to Joyce’s Ulysses.

The artist, whose daughter studies in Blackrock, depicts Ireland through the lens of his innovative cubist style, known as Diachronic Cubism. The exhibition will unveil his latest works, inspired by his travels in Ireland, showing landscapes, still lifes and muses of the Arts alongside works of French and Italian influences. In addition it will feature some prints by Roderic O’Conor, who greatly influenced Mathias early in his career.

Mathias, along with Howbert & Mays owners, Anthea Howbert and Tig Mays, are proud to present this exhibition in a spirit of a convergence of art and literature.

The exhibition premiere will take place on Thursday, May 16th at 6pm. The artist will also be available for a meet-and-greet session on Sunday, May 19th from 3 to 5pm. He will return for Bloomsday, Sunday, June 16th.

Regular exhibition hours:

Monday to Saturday: 10.00am to 6.00pm

Sundays and Bank Holidays: 11.00am to 5.00pm

The exhibition is free. No booking is necessary. For more information, visit Howbert & Mays’ website at
