Alexandra in a few words
Award winning artist Alexandra Gallagher is a British multidisciplinary artist and illustrator, who's work takes the form of design, branding, collage, street art, murals, prints, painting, book illustration, fashion, interiors and mixed media.

I have collaborated with a number of large clients and collectors including COAST fashion, Crown Paint, Grand Designs, Symphony of the Sea, Cushman & Wakefield.

Exhibiting and selling both across the country and internationally, I have been nominated for a number of awards. Shortlisted for the Zealous X, I was awarded the Saatchi Showdown Surrealism Second Place Winner and the Secret Art Prize Runner Up Winner 2016. Recent achievements include being a London Contemporary Art Prize 2018 Finalist and being shortlisted for the Rise Art Prize.

"If New York’s Lower East Side went Rococo, it’d manifest as Alexandra Gallagher’s sleek, trippy, succulent collages. The British artist wields Photoshop like a technicolor sword, slashing up images of flora and fauna into compositions framing subjects sylvan as Kate Moss with backgrounds evoking equal parts zodiac and mod design. Flamingos worthy of Miami gardens cavort alongside landscapes worthy of Kurt Vonnegut, but both share Gallagher’s common touch of the metallic, the lucid, and the unabashedly chic.
It’s Leda and the Swan meets punk rock, which is perhaps why Gallagher lists Artemisia Gentileschi as an influence, despite the seeming gap between their works. “The inspiration behind my work is our experiences as women in western society ... but I didn’t want to put something out there that’s obvious or brutal, I wanted to create something beautiful out of something ugly, but still give a voice,” Gallagher says. Her myriad layers of symbolism, feathers and faded limbs produce a synesthesia of both synthesizers and harpsichords worthy of Artemisia’s admiration - from one woman who wielded formidable swords to another"
