About the Artist

Michael Mulcahy b.1952

Irish painter Michael Mulcahy (born 1952) attended the Crawford Municipal School of Art, Cork, and the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. He is now one of the artists most prominently associated with Neo-expressionist painting in Ireland. Mulcahy 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. He is an elected member of Aosdána.
