Patrick Joseph Ward is a mosaic artist from Co Down Ireland. He graduated from the University of Ulster Belfast with BA. Hons. Fine and Applied Art in 1999, specializing in sculpture. He has been participating in exhibitions, art projects and sculpture competitions since 1988. This imaginary artist is constantly seeking opportunities to grow his work experience.
As a working artist, his path is not a clear cut. He has participated in the works of an art bronze casting foundry for two consecutive years in Dublin. Where he had a humble workshop on the outskirts of the city. He left Dublin in 2002 and moved to Finland for a one year residency program and have lived there up until now! The artist has been involved in many art projects, exhibitions and teaching program in Ireland and Finland.
Ever since he started hand-cutting tiles, he embarked on a sensational odyssey in search of the “right” pieces that inherently hold the desirable qualities of color, shape, and texture. Interviewed by Chantal Menhem-2015
