Cavanagh Foyle

Cavanagh Foyle is a self taught Dublin based Irish pop artist. She creates vibrant pop art with a distinctive retro twist. Cavanagh's signature “squiggs” make her art instantly recognisable. Her fascination with consumerism, pop culture and social media, particularly through the female form are defining elements of her work. Cavanagh's colourful social observations are showcased through large scale mixed media pieces, often infused with typography to deliver a bold, satirical message.

Since abandoning her corporate career as an aviation lawyer in early 2018 Cavanagh has worked feverishly to expand her passion for pop art. She has secured shows in Dublin, London, New York and Portugal. Cavanagh saw first hand that there was an appetite for her work in Ireland and abroad after her debut exhibit of her SKIN Series at Art Source RDS in November 2018. After the opening night The Sunday Times UK made her their headline calling her the "Newcomer who nearly steals the show from Warhol". Brown Thomas welcomed Cavanagh's artwork to their first in store gallery where both her large scale pieces sold to international collectors. Most recently she teamed up with NYC auction house Paddle8 for the first time where three of her pieces exceeded the reserve.
