About Conor Harrington

Conor Harrington's (Irish, b. 1980) blend of the historical and hypermodern is unsurpassed. The Irish former graffiti artist still paints outdoor murals worldwide to considerable acclaim, while enjoying a meteoric rise in his gallery career. Conor's lauded large-scale paintings fuse realist figurative work inspired by old masters with abstractions taken from the graffiti scene that nurtured his talents. He is a central figure within a new breed of young artists tackling socio-political themes using fine art techniques in a context formerly reserved for street artists. His work combines contemporary and classical references to create an astonishingly resonant dialogue with the viewer. Conor's earliest works used cutting-edge graffiti techniques to create intense multi-layered artworks that alluded to the work of abstract expressionist artists. In this way, he compared the radical street art movement to the revolutionary anti-figurative art of the early and mid-20th century.
