At the height of Ireland’s economic gloom in 1982, Patrick Walshe decamped to New York where he worked and exhibited as part of the East Village scene of that era.
In 1986 he moved to Los Angeles where he lived and worked for a further six years. He has exhibited widely in the U.S. over thirty years. He moved back to Ireland in 1993 via a circuitous route that took in India, Indonesia and several African countries and now lives with his family in the Wicklow Mountains.He has had numerous exhibitions both in Ireland and overseas since his return.
