About the Artist

Michael Mulcahy b.1952

Irish painter Michael Mulcahy attended the Crawford Municipal School of Art, Cork, and the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. Mulcahy is prominently associated with Neo-expressionist painting in Ireland. He has travelled extensively, particularly in North and West Africa where he lived with local communities. His semi-abstract paintings make reference to those groups, such as the Dogon in Mali, with which he has engaged. Mulcahy represented Ireland at the Sidney Biennale in 1984.
