Hello! We're Fierce Nice, an online art gallery specialising in museum-quality prints, original works and more by Ireland's finest contemporary artists. 

History & Mission

Fierce Nice was founded in 2019 by Ruan Shiels, a Galway-based entrepreneur with strong familial ties to the Irish art scene and a successful background in web development and digital marketing. The Fierce Nice gallery's goal is two-fold: 1) to support and showcase the amazing work being created by artists in Ireland, and 2) to present art collectors around the world with the opportunity to purchase Irish artworks at fair, affordable prices. 

How We Work

In addition to stocking a carefully curated range of original artworks, Fierce Nice collaborates directly with artists to produce museum-quality Giclée prints and merchandise. We handle the business side of things - product development, manufacturing, marketing, sales, distribution, etc - then transfer the highest possible margin of each sold item to the artist. This provides our partner artists with a consistent source of passive income and more freedom to focus on what they do best: create art.
