Azerbaijan visual artist Adil Vezir is in the final week of his exhibition at Kilkee this week.

Through this work he was directly exposed to vast amount of great and historic art. This experience inspired and informed his creative process and he always strives to achieve a high level of craftsmanship and precision in all of his art work.
