david fox Artist Bio:

David Fox is an emerging 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), where he studied for his BA in Fine Art in 2011, receiving an honors degree. Currently, he is living and working in Belfast where he has completed an MFA (Masters in Fine Art), at the University of Ulster. Early works by Fox were solely based on the medium of painting, making paintings based on the aesthetic values of paint application. His subject matter was mostly motivated by the impressionists. During his time on the MFA, Fox's work took a different route and he began to explore institutional interior spaces where the work created an uncanny atmosphere. These interior works depicted gallery spaces, where the work created a relationship between the paintings and the gallery environment in which the works were hung- creating an installation. Later in the MFA, he began to paint hotel interior spaces where the work was mostly influenced by Film. Fox has exhibited in many group shows throughout Ireland including the Galway Arts Festival in 2009 and Belfast's Platform arts gallery in 2011. During the degree show at GMIT in 2011, his work was awarded to Michael D Higgins for his own personal collection. In 2013 he was part of Dublin city's Big Egg Hunt, which he raised almost 1000 euros in aid of Jack and Jill's children's foundation
