Mulholland is an artist whose work bridges any number of divides. He is a highly skilled painter whose career, since graduation from Glasgow in 1991, has included exhibitions at some of the country’s most illustrious venues. Yet in recent years his work has also been seen in places considered the epitome of contemporary cool such as Tate Britain and the Whitechapel Project Space. His handiness with a paintbrush is not in doubt, yet these days, he is as well known for his digital animations as his brushwork.

Awarded the Glasgow Visual Artists Award and the Creative Scotland Artist Award, he lives and works in Glasgow and is currently course leader and lecturer in Fine Art at The Glasgow School Of Art. He has founded the artists collective OPERA AUTONOMA and also collaborates with artist Michelle Hannah as PICANA ELECTRICA
