White Lady Art is a New Contemporary Art gallery in Dublin, Ireland, featuring some of Ireland's best Lowbrow, Pop Surrealist, Urban & Street Art, Graphic, and New Gothic artists. We are also proud to represent artists from America and Europe.
The gallery is a place collectors can come and see art that has previously lived on the periphery of art culture in Ireland; where artists can come and be inspired; where you can hang out and read one of our art books or magazines. The emphasis is on enjoying the art, enjoying the space, and getting rid of pretension and high-culture diffidence.
On the website you will find interviews and videos of artists and openings who are dedicated to their craft and are breaking down traditional molds of art practice. While the gallery will showcase New Contemporary art from around the world, many of these artists will be Ireland-based.
Much of the art that is being celebrated in cities such as London, Berlin, San Francisco and Los Angeles is also present and flourishing here in Ireland. However, because Ireland has few places where artists can exhibit this ultra-modern art, and exhibiting in the many wonderful pop-up spaces in Dublin is expensive, it remains unseen and underground.
White Lady Art will curate art exhibitions every month that will bring a new generation of artists to the forefront of Irish modern art, and give them the exposure and respect they deserve.
The white lady statue I have used for my logo was photographed on the Sean Heuston Bridge (also known as King's Bridge), and has fascinated me for years. If you happen to be on the top deck of a bus in the city, you can sometimes see her in the windows of people's houses. Nobody* has ever found out exactly where she came from, or who she is, or who created the design, as far as I know. After wondering about her for a number of years, she has become for me a quintessential symbol for Dublin in my mind. By covering her with tattoos designed by Guen Douglas and Amanda Ruby, my intention was to unite traditional Dublin culture with a more modern interpretation. Plus I think it looks deadly! If anyone has any information about her, please feel free to email me at
