Conor harrington is a extremely talented Irish painter and street artist who has garnered worldwide recognition for his dramatic and mesmerizing artworks which wonderfully fuse together various street art motifs and rather ambitious realist painting. His prolific large-scale murals, canvases and opulent print editions of complex and overwhelming compositions, which masterfully blend classic imagery of great masters with contemporary elements, represent some of the most compelling contemporary art on display today. Harrington’s loose brushwork, seemingly unfinished imagery, dripping paint, and graffiti flourishes provide an antidote to his sometimes sentimental evocations of duty and honor. Originating from Cork, Ireland, and a former graffiti writer, Conor Harrington today works from his east London studio, but he is very active all around the world, from Dublin, US and UK, to Norway, Spain, and the Bethlehem Wall.
