Born in 1956 in Northern Ireland, Patrick originally began painting with water colors as a hobby. He rejected the idea of formal art training although he was accepted into the Northern Ireland College of Art.
In 1985 he moved to England and began to exhibit his work in London. By 1986 his master of lithography, silkscreen, and watercolor had won great acclaim and galleries throughout the world started to buy his works. Few artists have been able to achieve the strength of color coupled with the softness of light which he imparts to his work.
The most interesting aspect of Patrick Livingstone's work are to be seen in his silkscreens and lithographs. They are now collected in every country of Europe, the United States, Japan, and Australia
