Dave Madigan is a painter. He studied Visual Arts Practice in IADT, graduating in 2009.
Dave creates paintings of views of the built environment, often working from birds’ eye’s perspectives, drone photography and plein air painting. Within the work there are subversions, deceptions and exaggerations of urban phenomena hidden in plain sight. He achieves a lyrical and poetic interpretation of the City while awakening with some humour, the conscious and unconscious awareness of what’s in it.
He has featured in many group exhibitions including at the Joinery, Mermaid Arts Centre, TULCA, DLR, and the RHA Annual where he won the Friends of the RHA Award for a Senior Artist in 2018; and the RUA Annual where he won the Paul Henry Landscape Award in 2017.
His work is featured in public and private collections including the Office of Public Works, DCU Business School, and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
