About the Artist
O’Hagan was born in Wiesbaden, Germany, and was raised in the United States. He enjoys working in several media, but his primary focus is in oils and pastels. Although he appreciates many different forms of art, his main interests include the paintings of several late 19th century American, French, Spanish and Russian painters. Continuous study of these painters has had a strong influence on O’Hagan’s own art. Constantly challenging himself has translated into a fulfilling career in fine art encompassing several one-man shows and participation in group exhibitions in the United States, Japan, China and France.

O’Hagan is listed in Who’s Who in American Art and is a Master Pastelist with the Pastel Society of America. In 2005 he was inducted into the International Association of Pastel Societies’ “Master Circle.” O’Hagan has won several awards in national exhibits, recently including “Southwest Art Magazine’s Award of Excellence at the “Altitude and Attitude” Exhibition in Denver, Colorado. He has also won the George Innes, Jr. Memorial Award from the Salmagundi Club in New York City.

O’Hagan recently was invited to exhibit and conduct workshops and seminars at the 2nd Biennial China International Pastel Exhibition in Suzhou, China. In December 2016, F&W Media released four new instructional DVD’s by O’Hagan - two instructing pastel painting and two instructing oil painting.

His paintings have been the subject of feature articles in numerous national and international magazines, including American Art Collector, Southwest Art, The Artist Magazine, International Artist, American Artist, United Airlines’ Hemispheres, Artists and Illustrators (England), International Artist (Australia), and Gekkan Bijyutsu (Japan). He is also represented in four books. O’Hagan’s art is in public and private art collections in the Untied States, Japan, China, Canada and Europe. He is represented by galleries in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Edmonds, Washington; and Desmond O’Hagan’s studio in Denver, Colorado.
