This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Paul Funge is a Dublin painter highly regarded in particular for his figurative works. He trained as a set designer and was closely associated with the Lantern Theatre in Dublin.  At an exhibition of portraits in 1991 Brian Fallon, then art critic for The Irish Times, described Funge as a "born handler of paint".

Those who have sat for him include television personality Mike Murphy Funge and author Colm Toibin, who has said of Funge: "he has been an exemplary influence on a whole generation of Irish painters".

He exhibits at the Royal Hibernian Academy and the Oireachtas Independents (of which he was Chairman 1979-1982) and recently had a major retrospective in Drogheda.

His work is in the National Self-Portrait Collection (Limerick), Museum of Art (Santa Barbara), Art Institute (San Francisco), Gate Theatre (Dublin), National Concert Hall (Dublin), Dublin College University, and the C. J. Haughey Collection.
