Saffron Lily is an emerging artist working primarily through illustration, photography and writing. She
was born in the UK but is currently based in Ireland. Her work focuses on human relationships and
trying to make the intangible feelings tangible. Through her work, she explores themes of transience and
change, connection and identity. Words and poetry heavily influence her visual work and they often
interweave in how she chooses to express her concepts. Her work has been featured in Rookie Magazine,
District Magazine and hitRECord on tv, as well as published in multiple books and magazines. Her work has
been exhibited nationally and has had several international collaborations. Some of these exhibitions
include those with youth arts organisation, Red Bird, resulting in the group shows Speaking Space,
Polymorphism and The Condition of Others. She was selected as the recipient of the Young Cuirt New Writing
Prize in 2014. She is involved with the Junior Film Fleadh, a film festival that focuses on young emerging
filmmakers and has been on the judge’s panel for their competitions in the past. She is the founder and
editor of (un)titled: we are not defined by labels an online magazine she created to help promote and build a
platform for young artists alike. Last year, she curated BDGRL an exhibition that featured film, sculpture
and fine art and explored the issue of women’s representation. She has organised events that all share a
main focus on elevating the voice of diverse young artists, a topic which she is passionate about.
