Fintan Magee (AU)

Born in 1985 in Lismore, Australia but of Scottish descent, Fintan Magee is considered one of the world’s leading figurative street artists. Transporting the viewer beyond mundane routines and expectations into a world of unexpected beauty and chaotic balance, his paintings highlight the extraordinary nature of our everyday existence.

 

Magee’s large-scale murals create a visual circus of imagery and styles, taken from a wide range of influences, explained best by the artist himself: “Childhood memories and personal experiences inform my work but I also like to link personal experience to broader social issues like climate change or class struggle. In some works I feel like I’m telling stories that I don’t yet fully understand however, which brings an element of chaos or the subliminal.”
