Dony Mac Manus

Born in Dublin in 1971, Dony Mac Manus graduated with a Bachelor of Design (1995) and Higher Diploma in Art and Design Teaching (1998) at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, Ireland. He went on to receive a Millennium Scholarship Trust from the Bank of Ireland to do a Masters in Fine Art (2001) at the New York Academy of Art and also a Scholarship from the NYAA to use a studio in Provence in the South of France. Shortly after September 11 2001 he left Manhattan for Italy where he set up his studio first in Rome for a year and a half and then Florence for the next year and a half. He returned to Dublin in 2004 to establish the Irish Academy of Figurative Art over three and a half years which he has now entrusted to the remaining faculty and students. In late 2007 he returned to Florence to establish Studios so as to continue working on large international commissions while training in apprentices and students in his Studios.
