“Born in Lismore NSW, and growing up in Brisbane, Fintan Magee began drawing as a young child. Exposed to Brisbane’s graffiti culture in his teens Magee began to scrawl his name across the city in large vibrant letter forms.
Moving away from traditional graffiti in recent years, Magee has started to explore new ideas and imagery within his painting. In the last year he has created some of the largest and most striking street pieces in Australia. His bold guerilla mural works often combine still life painting of found objects with installation elements. Magee’s works explore themes of waste, consumption, loss and transition.”
~ When I was in Brisbane a few weeks ago, I was intrigued by Fintan Magee’s collaboration exhibition at the Queensland Art Gallery.
I especially like his street art, so I decided to ‘virtually’ collect and collage some more of his work, all of which can be seen on his flickr page and website.
