He first exhibited at the RHA in Dublin in 1947, and was represented in nearly every show for the next thirty years. In 1954, he became an associate of the RHA, and in 1964 he was made a full member. In 1951, he visited Spain for the first time and returned nearly every year subsequently. He also exhibited in Spain on many occasions, the last such show being in Malaga in 1973. A fluent Spanish speaker, the Spanish Government made him a Knight Commander of Spain. Campbell painted a variety of landscapes, particularly of the West of Ireland and Spain, and also worked in stained glass. He died in Dublin in 1979 and is buried in Glendalough, Co. Wicklow.
