Exhibition for Dogs By Ruan Van Vliet

An art show for our furry friends at Hen’s Teeth Studio


From 11th - 15th November
Opening night November 10th, 6.30pm


Artist and illustrator Ruan Van Vliet presents Exhibition for Dogs, an art show for our furry friends (and their owners and fans).

The artist has created a doggie paradise with giant bums for sniffing, bandaged cats, waiters with doggie treats and everything at dog height, of course!

“I got a little dog called Teasie just about a year ago and since she came into my life I've had little time to think of anything else but Dog Matters. So when the Hen's Teeth gang approached me about doing a show together, all I could think to say was "dogs". Big thanks to them for fully embracing and encouraging this buffoonery and thanks of course to Teasie, I hope she likes it.”

The fully immersive exhibition features fine art prints and sculptural pieces - in the award-winning illustrator’s whimsical and comical style. The show runs at Hen’s Teeth Studio, Mill Street, Dublin 8 from 11th-15th November. Fine art prints and merch from the show will be available to buy at the gallery and online from 6:30pm on November 10th.


Open to humans too! Dogs are not essential, but highly recommended.

He’s been commissioned by companies like KT and Vans, exhibited internationally and appears in the liner notes of countless records from the Irish underground scene. Ruan’s artwork is recognisable for its bright blobs of colour, smudgy expressive lines and absurdist worldview. The Dublin born illustrator works across print, commercial, editorial, publishing and self-initiated projects, includ- ing clothing, painting and animation. His first children’s book, Bartholomew & The Morning Monsters (w/ Sophie Berger, Cicada Books 2020) was Long-listed for the Klaus Flugge Prize 2021.
