Patrick Graham
(1943- )

Born in Mullingar, County Westmeath, Ireland in 1943, Graham attended the National College of Art and Design (1959-1963). Graham has long been considered 'Ireland's finest draughtsman' and a genuine 'artist's artist', but these much abused terms - though undoubtedly apt in relation to Graham - do not capture the truly powerful nature of his work. Graham's paintings and drawings are a magnificent and unique balancing act of strength and fragility.

"Patrick Graham's paintings are masterpieces... on a grand physical, emotional and intellectual scale... they are among the most cpmplicated, salient reflections on modern existence that have been made in the last decade."
Donald Kuspit
