Phil Mulloy studied painting and graduated from the Royal College of Arts in 1974.

Since 1988 he has produced and created numerous short animations that have won international awards and screened at prestigious international animation festivals including Zagreb, Berlin, Golden Gate, and Anima Mundi, to name a few.
“The only limit to the sarcasm and bitterness of this great British animator’s dark comedies is the incredible openness with which he unmasks social behaviour… Viewers laugh a lot, though deep down they shudder.” Anima Mundi, C R Muttos, 2004
Phil Mulloy is currently producing an animated feature film in co-production with Studio Filmbilder. Also see The Intolerance Trilogy screening at the UGC.
