Description

This monograph is the first to chart the entire career of Irish artist Conor Harrington, from the nascent graffiti of his teenage years to his status as an internationally recognised artist. Striking photography captures the visual evolution of a unique practice that has united the opulent ceremony of the baroque with the stark immediacy of graffiti. This updated edition now includes works which featured in Conor s September 2016 exhibition. Equally celebrated for both his large-scale gallery work and vast outdoor pieces, the book is split into Indoor and Outdoor sections. Harrington s artistic journey takes in Ireland, the UK, the US, Norway, Spain, Poland, Brazil and even the Bethlehem Wall, and is supplemented by fascinating documentary photography alongside the artist s personal narrative.

Author Biography

Conor Harrington was born in Cork, Ireland in 1980. In his mid-teens he painted his first wall on the streets of his hometown, and after completing a BA in Fine Art at Limerick School of Art and Design he relocated to London. Now equally synonymous with both large-scale studio compositions and outdoor murals, his provocative, dreamlike work draws a fascinating line between the street and the canvas.
