born in Dublin in 1946. He studied at Trinity College Dublin, NCEA and Dun Laoghaire School of Art from where he graduated in Fine Art in 1980. In 1984 he moved to Paris to study lithography and etching at the Atelier Champfleur. He now divides his time between Milan and Dublin.
Gorman has exhibited widely and regularly since the mid-1980s, especially in Dublin, London, Milan and Tokyo. Frequent and extended visits to Japan have notably influenced his working methods and materials, most memorably in a series of highly successful large-scale works executed on
handmade washi paper that he produced in western Japan in 1999.
