Michael Mulcahy Bio (click to view)
A member of Irelandís elect Aosdana, Michael Mulcahy is one of the countryís most distinctive and dramatic artists. Breaking onto the sedate Irish art scene in the 70ís after studying at Crawford College of Art and NCAD, his outrageous street performances and colourful disregard for the establishment of the time gave way to a curiosity to see beyond the confines of these shores. His travels took him to Timbuktu, to Papua New Guinea, to a Buddhist monastery in Korea a predilection for the unusual and exotic which has often been reflected in his sense of colour and the way he applies it, reminiscent of ethnic decoration with a fauvist love of the primitive, expressive qualities of colour.
