Street artist Conor Harrington was born in Cork, Ireland in 1980. These days he is living and working in London, where he considers himself as a ‘painter’ rather than street artist or gallery artist, to which he is both.
Harringon’s career began as a teenager tagging and graffiti painting in the streets of Ireland. Most of these nights were called hip-hop nights, where he would hang out with the DJs and MCs from around the Irish countryside at clubs in the 1990s. During the day he studied at the Limerick School of Art and Design, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2002.
These days Harrington’s outdoor street murals are often on a large scale. His work is a mixture of classical and contemporary art, blending the two together into a new and inventive way of art.
- In 2013, Harrington participated in the Dulwich Outdoor Gallery project, initiated by the Dulwich Picture Gallery.
