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, the impact of representation in media 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. She was selected as the recipient of the Young Cuirt New Writing Prize in 2014.
She is the founder and editor of (un)titled a platform for emerging artists encouraging diverse and varied perspectives within new media. In 2018, she co-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.
