Patrick Killoran was born in 1972 in Newtown Square Pennsylvania. He splits his time between New York and Los Angeles. After his initial indoctrination at Four Walls, Brooklyn, in 1995, he began pursuing a body of work that integrates art into everyday life. These pursuits led to his inclusion in numerous international shows including, the 1998 Sydney Biennial, “Wanås 2000” in Sweden, and “ev+a” (2005) in Limerick, Ireland. His most recent projects have been presented at the Center for Contemporary Art, Prague; IKON, Birmingham; SculptureCenter, New York City; and the Mori Museum, Tokyo. Killoran was a participant in Skowhegan in 1998 and has also attended residencies at the Vermont Studio Program, Art in General’s Eastern European Residency Exchange at the Jeleni Studio Program in the Czech Republic, and Civitella Ranieri in Umbertide Italy. He has received grants from the Rema Hort Mann Foundation, and the Penny McCall Foundation. Killoran’s work is sited in the products of consumer culture, such as T-shirts and automobiles.
