Vitruvian Man Comes to Tullamore

‘The Vitruvian: Uncovering the Layers of Cancer’ is a body of work by Tullamore local and leading Irish artist, Vincent Devine. It has been co-created with cancer researchers and patient partners at the UCD Conway Institute, University College Dublin.

Inspired by the iconic drawing of ‘The Vitruvian Man’ by artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent has created a striking image of an androgynous human to visually map the different perspectives and approaches that researchers use to understand cancer at molecular, cellular, tissue and human levels.

These events will bring the exhibition to life. The artist and up to three cancer researchers and a patient partner will talk about the creative process itself and the ongoing cancer research efforts, highlighting progress in this area.

More than ever before, cancer survivors are living longer and better lives. Cancer researchers in Ireland are contributing to global improvements in cancer outcomes.

The work will be on display in Tullamore’s Esker Arts Centre and more details can be found on
