Niall is an Irish scenographer based in London. After graduating from Wimbledon College of Art in 2017 he was awarded the 1 year full time design residency at the National Theatre's Max Rayne Studio. In 2019 he was Associate Set and Costume Designer on Translations at the National Theatre.
He recently collaborated with Diane Page, this year’s winner of the JMK Award with her production of Statements after an Arrest under the Immorality Act by Athol Fugard at the Orange Tree Theatre.
Niall continues to work within film including the Art Department on Peter Strickland's In Fabric; LOVE directed by Alexander Zeldin and Ben Wheatley's latest horror In The Earth. He has worked as a sculptor on HBO’s Game of Thrones for three years and gained his first two professional TV credits. He is a frequent collaborator of Yellow Belt Productions, in which he has designed three short films - Dungarees, Al(ly)ien and Trigger Point.
Within his fine art practice he is investigating ancient legends and urban mythic spaces as a way to dissect the conflicted and problematic attitudes towards cultural hijacking and queer identity within Northern Ireland.
