Fintan Magee spent the last few days in Toowoomba, a city in South-East Queensland, Australia, where he worked his way through this massive new piece.
Born in Lismore, Fintan Magee moved to Brisbane as a child and began drawing shortly after. In his early teens he was exposed to Brisbane’s graffiti culture and began to scrawl his name across the city with large vibrant letterforms. Moving away from traditional graffiti in recent years his guerilla murals often inhabit the isolated, abandoned and broken corners of the city. Mixing surreal and figurative imagery his paintings are deeply integrated with the urban environment and explore themes of waste, consumption, loss and transition and contain a sentimentality and softness influenced by children’s books.
Make sure to take a peep at more detailed images after the break and then check back with us soon for more updates from Australia and Fintan Magee.
