David Foggo


An artist based in Newcastle upon Tyne, North East.

I work across many disciplines ranging from Sculpture, Installation, Text, Photography, Collage and occasional Performance.

My practice mainly involves poetic responses surrounding the pun. Wordplay, comic theory, and art history references also inform what I do. Humour is an especially important element.

A succinct simplification of my practice could be as that of a finder/collector then rearranger.
