Fintan Magee is an Australian street artist known for his murals throughout Australia and the world. Born in Lismore, New South Wales, Magee was raised in Brisbane and exposed to graffiti culture at a very young age. Moving away from traditional graffiti in recent years, his large-scale 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, containing a sentimentality and softness influenced by children’s books. His diligent technical skills and progressive approach to painting have solidified his reputation as one of the leading figures in Australia’s Street Art scene.
