Eat, Sleep, Paint, Repeat – The wonderful world of ‘Margo in Margate’ comes to London.

Following a sell-out launch show at the Turner Contemporary in Margate, prolific portrait painter Margo McDaid AKA Margo in Margate now brings her coveted vintage-inspired works to London for a three-day solo show Eat, Sleep, Paint, Repeat at They Made This Gallery on Neal Street in Covent Garden.

When Margo in Margate posts her art for sale on Instagram, each work sells within minutes to her loyal, global following. So, art lovers intending to visit her debut London salon for this unique opportunity to view her original hand-painted canvases, works on paper and ceramics direct from the artist should book early!

Alongside the vibrant works hung on every inch of the gallery wall, Margo will create new works in live painting sessions in the gallery this Saturday 22nd July.

Margo says,

I literally live to paint – every single day of my life starts the same way, as paintbrush in hand I create work all day long. It is my joy and my passion, and every single inch of my studio is completely covered with works on paper and canvas

We are thrilled to bring the wonderful Margo McDaid’s hugely successful Eat, Sleep, Paint, Repeat Turner Contemporary show to London this summer. She brings a huge breath of fresh seaside air to our London gallery this summer with her joyful use of colour and portraiture and we cannot wait to throw the doors open to this magnificent solo show

About the artist

Irish artist Margo McDaid AKA Margo in Margate has not stopped painting for nine years. Working every day in her Kent studio, she has quietly amassed a vast body of work; one artwork a day, every day, for 3,000 days. The demand for her work is just as prolific and she has gained a cult following online, with works selling out as quickly as she can upload them to her Instagram account.

Trained in applied art at Camberwell, Margo worked as a community artist and art teacher before moving to the Kent coast in 2010. In 2014, she committed to life as a full-time artist and beginning her practice of daily painting. Her work, predominantly female portraiture, is instantly recognisable, with an other-worldly vintage feel; full of vibrant colour inspired by the youth culture of her muse, Margate.
