Matt Grogan

Mat Grogan
Born 1947 Dublin

Having spent most of his working life in advertising, Mat began painting in
the mid eighties while living in Australia. As a member of the Wildlife
Artists Society of Australia, he exhibited widely over the next decade or
so, winning several awards. His return to Ireland 1997 prompted a change of
career from advertising to painting and from wildlife to still life. Much
of what mat produces is informed by the works of Chardin and Vermeer
modified by a continuing drift to impressionism. His work is represented in
private collections in the US, Hong Kong, Australia Britain and Ireland.
