About Pat Curran
Pat Curran grew up in Dolphin House flats, Dolphin’s Barn and the Liberties, he now lives in Ballyfermot with his wife Breda and son Luke. Pat has two older children and two grandchildren.  An early school leaver, Pat returned to formal education in early middle age. In 2014 Pat graduated from NCAD with an MFA in painting.  Pat’s work reflects how inner city Dublin life is changing and how it contributes to a wider conversation about class, social justice and access to artistic expression.  Pat often paints on found and collected objects that have a relevance to his painting subjects.

Following his residencies with Common Ground in the Lodge and studio 468, Pat moved to a new studio in Pallas Projects Studios at the Digital Hub in June 2022. Pat was also featured on RTÉ 1 on Culture Night 2022 in conversation with actor and singer Jessie Buckley.
