David Fox

David Fox is an Irish contemporary artist, specialising in paint.

Originally from Tullamore, Co. Offaly and born in 1987, Fox has been painting since a very young age. He graduated from GMIT (Galway), with an Honours degree in Fine Art in 2011 and the University of Ulster, Belfast, with an MFA (Masters in Fine Art) in 2013

The artist now lives and works in Dublin and is becoming increasingly well established as an emerging artist, having had recent and ongoing participation in both group and solo exhibitions.

Fox has exhibited both nationally and internationally including the Galway Arts Festival in 2009, Belfast’s Platform arts gallery in 2011 and the Luan Gallery, Westmeath in 2015. Most recently he has exhibited at international art fairs including Positions art fair, Berlin and international solo exhibitions at Galeria Silvestre, Tarragona Spain.

We met the artist at Visual Artists Ireland's Speed Curating event in Belfast in January 2016. David was then invited to participate in our group show 'Republic' in the summer of 2016 before joining the gallery's AGA gtoup later that year.
