Irish artist Paul D'Arcy, Dublin

The search for a visual language to represent the universal conundrum - who are we, and what is reality - this is what drives the extraordinary work of Paul D'Arcy, and has done for more than a decade.

Paul D'Arcy's works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Ireland and abroad, and he was a nominee for the 1999 Cothu awards and the ICF Awards in 2007. He now lives and works in the seaside town of Skerries, near Dublin.

He is primarily a self-taught artist, although he attended night classes during the late 1980s at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD), where he absorbed life drawing and painting under Desmond Carrick RHA. In 1991, he began a diploma course in Fine Art at Dun Laoghaire College, whose tutors included the renowned Nick Miller. He has been painting full time since 1992 and enjoys travelling extensively.
