Conor Harrington is an Irish artist currently residing in London. You’ll find his piece, ‘The Duel of Bristol’ for the 2012 See No Evil festival in Bristol on the side of St. Lawrence House, just off of Nelson Street.
Whilst technically brilliant, the piece is also thematically interesting; a hybrid of modern and classical painting techniques with both a historical and a modern-day flair. Use of abstract elements combined with bright outbursts of colour over a wholly darker palette make his work avid to the eye and intriguing to the senses. Where his work tends to stand out is the fact that not only are his huge street murals loved by street art lovers the world over, but his canvas work is also held to critical acclaim in a more classical art setting.
Street artists crossing over into gallery work is not entirely unheard if, but the fact that his work is ‘urban’ enough for the streets yet still technically sophisticated enough to be considered worthy of modern contemporary art galleries is a rarity in itself.
Conor aims to portray the modern-day conflict of the male identity throughout his work.
