Boo Saville

Boo Saville (b. 1980) is an artist and printmaker whose painstakingly detailed ink drawings and paintings on canvas encompass two different styles of working – monochromatic depictions of life and highly pigmented abstraction. Since graduating from the Slade School of Art, London, in 2004, Saville has seen her work acquired by major collections, including the Soho House Group, both in the UK and internationally. Twice nominated for the Sovereign Painting Prize (2007 and 2011) she undertook a residency at the Cité des Arts in Paris in 2008. In 2010, Saville worked with art publishers Other Criteria, founded by Damien Hirst, to publish Ghost, a set of unique prints. In 2018, her paintings were exhibited at Newport Street Gallery as part of a group show, True Colours. Recent solo exhibitions include The Smoke Detector and the Watchtower at Davidson Gallery, New York (2021-22), and a deeply personal exhibition, Ma, at TJ Boulting gallery, London (2022). She lives and works in Margate, UK.
