Biography

Toby Mulligan’s distinctive contemporary figures have won him both critical and public acclaim. He works in a variety of media including charcoal on paper and inks. He is deeply engaged with the whole creative process so often grinds his own pigments and has been known to experiment with varnishes, wax, medieval paint recipes and rolls of wallpaper.

His spontaneous style has developed over many years. When he begins a piece, he does not prepare with sketches or planning, but simply starts to paint or draw, and each work is intuitive, spirited and extraordinary. He uses a wide range of models, but feels that his best work comes from making a connection with the person he paints. Although he does use photographs, his preference is always to paint from life and to form this connection with the model.

Toby admires a wide range of artistic traditions, but has learned over the years not to be bound by them, but to paint how and what he likes. When he begins a piece, he does not prepare with sketches or planning, but simply starts to paint or draw, and each work is intuitive and spontaneous, Toby was commissioned to paint tennis star Roger Federer in 2014 for the player’s annual charity gala in Geneva, and his work is in private collections around the world, including Mick Jagger’s chateau in France. A painting of one of his daughters was a major public success too. Entitled ‘About Time’, the portrait was selected for the BP Portrait Award 2012. It was hanging in the National Portrait Gallery in London throughout the summer and is currently in the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh. Toby has also made a number of films painting portraits for Winsor and Newton, Liquitex and Cass Art and he has been filmed painting for Sky Arts TV for a forthcoming show.
