Paddy Molloy


I am an illustrator and educator, currently a senior lecturer on BA(Hons) Illustration Animation. My practice explores the role of interaction and place to locate and activate images. Crossing Time, a commission for House of Illustration, used the landscape of King's Cross as an archive to document and reinterpret the fluid nature of place. Marking Domains, a symposium I curated, explored the territorial boundaries of both the domestic and public realm as location for illustration. I have worked as a collaborator in theatre to devise narrative and develop visual content for integration within live productions. These include the National Theatre Studio, Barbican, Young Vic, Unicorn Theatre and Liverpool Playhouse.
