Patrick Hickey

Born in India in 1927, Patrick Hickey lived in Ireland from 1948. He studied architecture at UCD (graduating in 1954), and later etching and lithography at Scuola del Libro, Urbino in Italy.

A painter, etcher, lithographic artist, architect and designer, he exhibited at the IELA in the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s, and held numerous solo exhibitions at the Dawson Gallery in Dublin.

His interests included Japanese painting and sculpture, ceramics, Italian language and literature and the Irish landscape.

A master printmaker, he founded the Graphic Studio Dublin in 1961, and his characteristic painting technique developed out of his printmaking methods.
