Conor Harrington

Conor Harrington hails from Cork in Ireland. His work is an incredibly successful collusion between fine art and street techniques. According to Conor himself, central to his oil canvasses is “the male figure, referring to the masculinity of urban culture”.

The men in Conor’s paintings allude to the not necessarily heroic, but stoic and pensive male of the modernist painters; however the pieces are plastered with post-modern graffito flourishes in a pertinent clash of styles – “I’m interested in the dynamics between opposing elements” says the artist.
