Róisín Nolan (B. 1991) is an Irish multi-disciplinary artist based in London, UK.

A self-taught artist, she has worked in fashion retail, the Canadian TV and film industry, and creative communications for Canadian and UK-based start-ups in the legal cannabis sector.


Specialising in collage on paper, a satirical dadaist influence is evidenced throughout her work. Róisín sources physical imagery to visually narrate stories through a queer intersectional feminist lens.

Applied patience is integral to her practice. Time spent out in the physical world searching for imagery or engaging with people in shops or on the street is used to consider potential applications for symbolism, theory, and philosophy in her work. 

Critical of inequality, wealth disparity, the lack of intersectional representation in prolific spaces, conservative politics and the influence of Colonialism, Catholicism and capitalism on modern Ireland, are thematically present in her collages.

Nolan is currently studying in the evenings as a mature student, enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (Sociology Minor) at DCU. She intends on applying the academic learnings from the degree to better inform her artistic practice. Presently, Róisín is working as a content and community manager and has recently relocated to London, UK. She has been editing grant applications, focusing on album artworks across a range of genres and is excited to apply psychological theory to her visual work.
