After a look at the street pieces Ethos and Vhils put up for Komafest in Norway, we turn our attention to Conor Harrington (interviewed). The UK-based painter worked on several murals while he was in Vardø which featured imagery similar to what was seen during his recent London solo (covered) as well has mix of photorealistic and abstract colonial portraiture.

After a recent foray into the town of Grottaglie in Italy to kick off the FAME Festival with a series of impressive murals, Conor Harrington (interviewed) returns to the UK and promptly works on another large scale wall with his usual referencing of colonial imagery. The new work, created in his distinctive combination of abstract and photorealistic rendering, is located on Whitecross Street in London and is entitled Gonna Take My Problems to the United Nations.

It’s time for another Rewind feature where we collect videos from the week that might be of some interest to our readers. Leading things off is some footage of the time Conor Harrington (interviewed) spent in Grottaglie, working on murals (part 1 & part 2) for this year’s FAME Festival.

As outlined in our article at the end of last month, Conor Harrington (interviewed) has been in Grottaglie to kick off this year’s FAME Festival. Bringing back the 2008 & 2009 alumn was a great choice as the Irish painter’s colonial style rendering fits perfectly in the winding streets of the Italian town. Aside from the first two murals we shared with you, here are several more, including a huge one based on the imagery from his London solo (covered) earlier this year. Discuss Fame Festival […]

Just like when he gifted his home county with a series of murals (here, here, & here) last summer, Conor Harrington (interviewed) appears to be hitting up multiple walls on this trip to Ireland as well. We already showed you a quick piece he whipped up outside of Lurgan, but now comes photos of something new – The Duel of Belfast, Dance By Candlelight. Keep it locked here on AM to see if any future walls will pop up. Discuss Conor Harrington here.
Last we saw of Conor Harrington (interviewed), he was hitting London with an impressive new collection of paintings at Lazarides (covered) of which you can see the some of the photoshoot and photoreferences here by the way. While the successful showing was no doubt satisfying, it did not quench his thirst for outdoor work. On a recent trip back to his home country, he painted this new quickie mural outside of Lurgan, Ireland. Discuss Conor Harrington here.
